The Switch Hierarchical Network Design Model (SHiNDiM): A Mechanism for Identifying and Determining the Correct Switch for the Appropriate Position in the Network Layer
Designing and developing a reliable and stable network required installing the right switches in the correct positions of the hierarchical network layers. The identification, acquisition and determination of the right switches required the expertise of highly skilled and qualified network Engineers. However, employing and maintaining such expertise in some of the ICT companies is very challenging. As a result, some companies had to employ less skilled employees in building such a network. Therefore it became a major challenge for less skilled Technicians to identify and determine the right switches for the correct positions within the network layers.
