We have a managed package and wants to check if the subscriber has enabled Network object in their Org. I try with this Schema.sObjectType.Network.isAccessible() But getting an error if the network object is not enabled.

Error: "Missing Organization Feature: NetworksEnabledOnce"

The moment you use a "static reference" to a feature, it becomes a dependency. In other words, your code depends upon Communities being enabled, and therefore the platform requires it to be enabled.

Code like the following automatically causes dependency:

Map<String, SObjectField> fieldMap = Schema.sobjectType.Network.fields.getMap();
Network[] records = [SELECT Name FROM Network];
Network record = new Network(Name='abc');

In order to avoid this, you will need to use "dynamic references", such as the following:

if(Schema.getGlobalDescribe().containsKey('Network')) {
  sobject[] results = Database.query('select name from network');
  for(sobject result: results) {
    String name = (String)result.get('Name');
    // ... etc ... //
