Welcome to the Cisco® Support Community Ask the Expert conversation.  This is an opportunity to learn and ask questions about hierarchical network design. 

Recommending a network topology is required for meeting a customer's corporate network design needs in their business and technical goals and often consists of many interrelated components. The hierarchical design made this easier like "divide and conquer" the job and develop the design in layers.

Network design experts have developed the hierarchical network design model to help to develop a topology in discrete layers. Each layer can be focused on specific functions, to select the right systems and features for the layer.

A typical hierarchical topology is

  • A core layer of high-end routers and switches that are optimized for availability and performance.
  • A distribution layer of routers and switches that implement policies.
  • An access layer that connects users via lower-end switches and wireless access points.
