Financial Aspects

In addition to technical financial considerations are also important in network design because the stations cannot be established without adequate money, equipment cannot be purchased and operated, and staff cannot be hired. Hence, after the preliminary design of the network has been completed, the expenditure to establish stations and the cost of operating them should be estimated. These monetary requirements should match with the budget so that the proposed network is sustainable. In case of deficit in the budget, the network should be re-aligned or additional budget should be arranged. Stations in the network may be prioritized to best attain the objectives, given the constraints.
