Moreover, most of the network communication equipment vendors are channelizing their product portfolio to match the business requirements of their customers, and introduce new customized product offerings.
The companies in the BRIC region are now looking into various purchasing options, with advanced ENCE as the application platform of future network-based services. Further, this application platform expands the use and reliability in networking and communication services. For example, Cisco Systems' intelligent gigabyte Ethernet switches are used in traffic management applications. These switches are categorized as a Layer 2, Layer 3, or multi-layer type; depending on the switching, routing and traffic management capabilities of the network architecture inside the switch. These switches offload tasks from the CPU (central processing unit) and automatically maintain the traffic of data.
The BRIC market is witnessing a shift in focus; from being cost-driven to quality-driven. Thus, the vendors are developing innovative network communication products with the cost benefits. Further, businesses are shifting from the traditional large-scale production to mass customization. The customizable application or computing platforms including the multiple business functions give an impetus to the ENCE market in BRIC. Moreover, businesses incorporate these applications, and make them ready to be used.
