Packet Switching

Packet switching places a tight upper limit on block size.

A fixed size of packet which can be transmitted across the network is specified.

In packet switching, all the packets of fixed size are stored in main memory. This improves the performance as the access time, that is time taken to access the data packet, is reduced, thus, the throughput or measure of performance of the network is improved.
