Ok still some more doubts. In wds will there be two network or one. I move from near of one router to near to second one will the mobile phone or laptop switch from one to second with some gaps in between? Smtime when I browse I don’t know why but browser stops and say network change detected. Will something similar happen to wds?

In case of wds there will be two networks, one from primary router & one from secondary router. Ideally you should use wds on 2 floors with primary router covering one floor & secondary router covering other floor. Also that network change msg is because of switching between wifi & 4g network, when you switch between 2 different wifi networks of same internet connection then it is not practically noticeable.

Mesh routers, most likely. TP-Link Deco M4 costs like 8k for 2 routers. Deco E4 lacks 1 Gbps LAN port. Also, big universities or offices use high-end Cisco stuff many times, which are more expensive.

That does not seems like mesh, as mesh is mostly wireless. It seems like they have wired all these routers in AP mode and connected them to a main switch. This can be achieved pretty easily.

What's more interesting is if you have something like unifi dreammachine pro along with there Poe switch, you can wire APs without any hassle with just 1 wire as it supports Poe. You can also wire Poe cameras to the switch itself which is really great for these applications. The AP along with cameras and other smart home gadgets can be great but the minimum setup for this cost around 1.3lakhs in India!!!!!! Just because of customs etc. And so is only good for enterprises.
