packet switching
Jump to user comments
communications A communications paradigm in which packets
(messages or fragments of messages) are individually routed
between nodes, with no previously established communication
path. Packets are routed to their destination through the
most expedient route (as determined by some routing
algorithm). Not all packets travelling between the same two
hosts, even those from a single message, will necessarily
follow the same route.
