Can you pool or group network infrastructure into a nice set of "components"? We are scoping an external audit review of our core network infrastructure to identify any risks, but we arent from a network background, so I wondered if you could assist grouping the various components that fall into infrastructure, i.e. does enterprise storage, do firewalls, do host servers, what else etc?

Out of interest what typically is classed as core infrastructure, and what is classed as non-core infrastructure? Does infrastructure typically = hardware?

Simply, network infrastructure is in terms of equipment and connections, that makes up a network it can consist anything from individual networked computers to routers, cables, wireless access points, switches, backbones, network protocols, and network access methodologies.
