Hence, the need for routers and switches is inevitable since a stronger and bigger network is required to support the large economy, which cannot be satisfied by chipsets alone. In addition, the whole nation is so in tune with technology that it is among the leading mobile app developers in the world. In addition, the increase in the use of the internet and media is contributing to heavy network and connectivity traffic.
