Circuit Switching

In circuit switching, firstly the complete physical connection between two computers is established and then data are transmitted from the source computer to the destination computer.

Here, when a computer places a telephone call, then the switching equipment within the telephone system seeks out a physical copper path all the way from sender telephone to the receiver's telephone.

The important property of the circuit switching technique is to setup an end-to-end path or connection between computer before any data can be sent.
