The author stresses the importance of network topology. It is the soul of the network. A statement of work (SOW) for the design of any large network must define the network topology first. Hardware is not important at early stages of design. The book then compares several topologies for performance and cost. The best topology forms the basis of a SOW. The book also presents a network design tool that synthesizes an optimum network in an iterative manner. The tool runs on a MAC or a PC.
