Additionally, the networks themselves are becoming more complex, and actual operations are being carried out on a daily basis with a range of obstacles as a result of the growing demand for high-speed, high-capacity lines and the desire to create a better communication environment.
How can Japan manage the country's doubling in two years of traffic? Controlling the sporadic brief burst traffic brought on by operating systems, games, and attacks, in addition to other problems, is just one of many.
