Characteristic Packet Switching Circuit Switching

Data Transmission Data is broken into

packets and transmitted separately

Data is transmitted over a dedicated

path (circuit)

Connection Setup Process No dedicated path;

packets routed dynamically

Dedicated path established before data transmission

Resource Utilization Shared resources; more

efficient utilization

Dedicated resources; less flexible but

guaranteed bandwidth

PACKET SWITCHING VS. CIRCUIT SWITCHING:

ADVANTAGES AND

DISADVANTAGES Packet Switching:

Advantages: Flexibility, scalability, efficient resource utilization. Disadvantages: Variable delays, potential packet loss, less predictable performance.

.

REAL-WORLD EXAMPLES

Packet Switching: Internet Protocol (IP) networks, where data is transmitted in packets over shared paths.

Circuit Switching: Traditional telephone networks, where a dedicated circuit is established for the duration of the call.

viisualization

Circuit Switching: Advantages: Guaranteed bandwidth, low delay, predictable performance. Disadvantages: Inflexible, inefficient resource utilization, less scalable.

Packet switching prioritizes flexibility and efficient resource usage, albeit with potential delays and packet loss. In contrast, circuit switching guarantees bandwidth and predictable performance but sacrifices flexibility. The selection between these methods hinges on application needs and the desired balance between flexibility, performance, and resource utilization in telecommunications.
