Circuit Switching versus Packet Switching

Manfred Sneps-Sneppe


Communication specialists around the world are facing the same problem: shifting from circuit switching (CS) to packet switching (CS). Communication service providers are favoring “All-over-IP” technologies hoping to boost their profits by providing multimedia services.
