This paper is concerned with a comparison study of three switching techniques used in computer-based communication networks: circuit switching, message (packet) switching, and cut-through switching. Our comparison is based on the delay performance as obtained through analytic models of these techniques. For circuit switching, the model reflects the phenomenon of channel reservation through which it can be shown that when circuit switching is used, data communication networks saturate rapidly… CONTINUE READING
