December 18, 2009, Newsletter Issue #112: Advantage of Packet Switching

Tip of the Week

Packet switching is a very efficient technology.



Instead of sending a constant stream of bytes, a packet-switched phone system sends just the packets of noisy bytes. If neither you nor the person you're talking to are speaking, nothing is transmitted.



Packets of data can be sent throughout the network along the least congested and cheapest routes.



For the customer this translates into lower cost of service because costs to the provider are so much less.
