Besides that, the central control of the devices such as network printers and network cameras etc. is also provided securely. Network devices is also preferred for storage, backup and VoIP systems (IP phone) as well as these features. Network has reached a further point thanks to the widespread use of concepts and technologies such as "internet of things, smart home systems". In the past, networking required a lot of equipment along with technical knowledge. Network setup was very cumbersome. But today, devices are automatically connected to each other over the network.
