Packet Switching - Data transfer on a network (usually LAN), in which the data that is sent had no pre-determined path through the network. The data will arive in no particular oreder and will be sorted at the recieving end.

Circuit Switching - Data transfer in which a route through the network must be determined before the data is put onto the network. The data will arrive in order and will require no sorting at the other end.


ATM - (Sorry I cant remember this one)

Hope this helps !!!

Hi,

Check out http://www.computingstudents.com for general computing and ict stuff. There's a definition of ATM in the site's online dictionary. Dunno if its what you were looking for.

Well in AS speak an ATM is an Automated Telling Machine AKA the hole in the wall where you get your cash.

Good job you mentioned Module 4 + 5 because I nearly had a heart attack wondering why my teacher hadn't mentioned those things. But thankfully it's because I'm an AS Comp Student.
