Summary

In this chapter, we discussed the changing role of networks in a digital world, the various challenges faced by networks because of dynamic business environments, and how networks can be adapted to these challenges by using a structured approach to network design.

We looked at the different characteristics of good network design and what they mean from an operations perspective.

In the next chapter, we will delve deeper into how to accommodate the desirable characteristics while designing the network. We will cover the different parts of an organization's IT network and discuss the functions of each part of the network before we drill down into each part individually in later chapters.
