Packet-Switched Network

A network that allows a message to be broken into small packets of data that are sent separately from a source to a destination. Packets may travel different paths and arrive at different times, with the destination sites reassembling them into the original message. Packet-switching is used in most computer networks because it allows a very large amount of information to be transmitted through a limited bandwidth.
