One of the key advantages of using routers in a network environment is the ability to segment the network into smaller, more manageable subnetworks. This segmentation helps in controlling network traffic flow and isolating potential network issues. By dividing a large network into smaller segments, routers enable better organization and administration of network resources. This approach also enhances network security by confining the impact of network disruptions or security breaches to specific segments, thereby minimizing the overall risk to the entire network.
