Network planning should be done once you have completed a hardware sizing estimation. The reason for this is that during the sizing step, you will define your expectations of storage size, performance needs, as well as your backup strategy. These aspects will determine the network strategy, such as number of network interfaces you need, connection speeds and other parameters.
