In a previous article, we have discussed the various network protocols and layers in networking. In this article, we shall discuss the about the type of connection between devices interconnected in a network. Ethernet and CSMA/CD are some technologies based on the protocols we have learnt. A data is segmented into packets and in layer headers are included for error-checking. These headers are also essential for routing the packet from sender to receiver. There are two methods for routing (circuit switching and packet switching) discussed briefly in this article.
This GCSE Computer Science module introduces
