What is Metcalfe’s Law?

In computer networks and telecommunications, the idea of Metcalfe’s Law is used to illustrate a network’s worth. According to Metcalfe’s Law, the influence of a network is proportional to the square of the number of network nodes. A network, for instance, has an intrinsic value of 100 (10 × 10) if it contains 10 nodes. Computers, servers, or connected users might be the end nodes.
