The ongoing pandemic has increased the demand for the internet. So, what kind of growth you have seen in the Wi-Fi router segment?

We have done pretty well to capture a good portion of the router segment in 2020. We cannot share the exact number due to our policies. But, we are happy to share that we are growing at the pace of 38 percent YoY.

What kind of challenges you are facing after lockdown?

Due to the pandemic, there has been a huge demand for high-end routers since most of the people are working from home and all devices are connected via one Wi-Fi device, due to this people have been looking for better quality products for connectivity. Hence, we have been witnessing a shortage in terms of supplying to the existing demand. The demand for the Wi-Fi Mesh technology has increased and we are working on the supply part.
