Networking Hubs are one of the most popular devices in terms of network connection. It is a node that broadcasts data to every computer or Ethernet-based device connected to a computer. In basic, a hub is referred to as a hardware device that enables multiple devices or networks to be connected. An example of this networking hub is a USB hub, which allows multiple USB devices to be connected to one computer. These hubs are best suited for small, simple local area network (LAN) environments and connection. However, the lateral shifting from hub to routers has been hampering the market scenario but with the rising advantages of these hubs in small scales companies is boosting the market demands.
- Increasing Applications of these Networking Hub in Electronic Devices
- Rising Digitalization coupled with Increasing Electronics Sector
- Shifting Trend Towards Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) by a Large-Scale Organization is Expected to Drive the Market Demand for Network Hubs
- Hubs cannot provide routing capabilities or other advanced network services. Owing to that they operate by forwarding packets across all ports indiscriminately. Thus making people change their preference from hub to switches or repeaters.
Advancements in Technologies over a period of time id Creating an Opportunity and Shifting Focus towards Incorporation of Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-To-Machine (M2M) Networks is Immensely Contributing towards the Industry
