PS – Packet Switched

In a packet switched network, data may be transferred by dividing it into small blocks or pieces known as packets. Each packet contains information in its header to allow it to be routed by packet switches across the network. This is a more efficient means of transferring data. An example of a packet switched network is the Internet.
