Packet Switching

Back to the Glossary


A communications method that sends information through a digital network by breaking up that message into smaller pieces, called packets. Packets contain a specific destination address, which means they can be dynamically routed, taking different paths to arrive at the same destination where the packets are reassembled in their proper order.
