Plan for Network Migration and Growth

  1. Determine if the network supports current traffic demands and identify any bottlenecks that exist
  2. Understand how much additional traffic the network can support and what sections of the network need to be upgraded when traffic volume increases in the future
  3. Explore alternatives such as hardware upgrades, IGP metric tuning, traffic engineering, and QoS implementation
  4. Predict the impact of equipment (e.g., networks, servers) migration or consolidation on network performance and application response time
  5. Validate proposed changes prior to deployment
