A Study Paper on Communication Network and overview of Packet Switching Technology

Sandeep Panwar, Amit Garg, Naresh Kumar


In this paper,we highlight some of the principal events that led up to the revolution in communications among information processing systems. We devote most of this presentation to a brief summary of the communication networks experience, emphasizing the description, functions, analysis, design and performance measurement of packet-switching networks. We also discuss some recent advances in radio packet switching for long-haul
