Network topology. Dictates how the computers will be connected. Common network topologies include a star, a bus, and a ring.
Network protocol. The format data takes as it passes over the network connection. The protocol determines how the computer sends and receives messages and what type of data compression is used. Ethernet is one of the most popular protocols, supporting data-transfer rates of up to 10 megabits per second.
Network architecture. The network architecture can take one of several forms, including peer-to-peer (in which each computer or node on the network has equal capabilities) and client/server (in which one node, the server, is more powerful and manages network functions for the client, or PC, devices).
The network architect must utilize the right mix of technology to provide adequate network bandwidth for the network users' needs. Network bandwidth is the amount of data that can be transmitted on a network in a particular amount of time.
Video- and graphic-intensive applications require higher bandwidth than simple text-based programs. Bandwidth management software helps identify and alleviate network bottlenecks.
Network administrators also use load balancing to allocate network bandwidth to compute-intensive applications so they won't bring down overall network performance.
With the network design and installation complete, the focus shifts to network management and maintenance. Network administrators must ensure the network operates reliably, that its performance or speed is adequate, and that it is secure from unwanted intrusion.
With the advice of internal or external security professionals, network administrators use techniques and technology, including firewalls and user authentication, to ensure data stored on a computer on the network cannot be read without proper authorization.
