Following a two-node architecture(instead of a three-node architecture), i.e. a Controller node and a Compute node , where can I incorporate the Network node? I mean should I install OpenStack Neutron on the Controller node or the Compute node? What are the pros and cons of both approaches?

Moreover, please suggest how would the two nodes would then be connected?

Regarding Two Node architecture implementation view 
Setup configuration
- Controller node: Nova, Keystone, Cinder, Glance, Neutron (using Open vSwitch plugin&VLAN )
- Compute node: Nova (nova-compute), Neutron (openvswitch-agent)

  In general, three node architecture is recommended :-

Controller Node
Neutron Server
Compute Node
