packet-switched network

packet-switched network
   A network that consists of a series of interconnected circuits that route individual packets of data over one of several routes, offering flexibility and high reliability.
   A packet-switched network may also be called connectionless because it contains many different possible connections and routes that a packet might take to reach its destination.
   The term often refers to networks using the international standard X.25.
   See also packet switching.
