The fallacies are

  • The network is reliable;
  • Latency is zero;
  • Bandwidth is infinite;
  • The network is secure;
  • Topology doesn't change;
  • There is one administrator;
  • Transport cost is zero;
  • The network is homogeneous.


This blog post explores more of these falacies and it comes with nice diagrams.
