We're building an OpenStack invironment for an IT department to distribute lab-images through the cloud. We were wondering if the Neutron service is mandatory to be installed and configured given the fact that we are performing a single node installtion.

Are there any useful tips that you can give us for such a project use case?

1) If you want to deploy a openstack private cloud (whether its single or multi node) Neutron service is required. I mean it provides network connectivity to your VM's.

2) It enables Network-Connectivity-as-a-Service for other OpenStack services, such as OpenStack Compute. Provides an API for users to define networks and the attachments into them.

3) If you want to deploy only swift (object storage) neutron is not required. You can integrate swift with keystone for authentication and authorization.

For more understanding go through this conceptual architecture

It belongs to what kind of network you want to create. You can also use nova network.

In case of RDO install IceHouse via packstack then yes.
In case of Devstack install on Ubuntu 14.04 I guess then no, you can run nova-network
