a.shaukat's spot on. There are several other things you'll want to consider (after all this IS a network management topic) that are not focused on the end hosts:
1.Infrastructure IP requirements- You'll want to design a range of /30's for your point to point links, a range for your network devices (in band or out of band managed).
2. IP address management / name resolution. Not all of the devices on the network will understand DHCP, but people will insist on putting them on the network and being able to resolve what ever silly name they come up for them. You'll need DNS at the minimum to keep up with that.
3. Routing protocols- how much time and resiliancy do you want to spend maintaining it ? RFC compliant or prorietary ? Mixed or monolithic vendor deployment ?
