Types of Switching

Switching is a process of moving the data through a


series of intermediate steps rather than moving from
the start point directly to the end point.
Switching

Circuit Switching

Chapter 16

Message Switching

Packet Switching

Circuit Switching

Direct physical connection established between sender


and receiver before data transmission
Allows a fixed rate of transmission
Major drawbacks are:
Unused transmission is wasted
Unused bandwidth cannot be used by any other
transmission

Chapter 16

Message Switching

No direct physical connection established between


sender and receiver
Message routed through the intermediate nodes
This technology is also known as store and forward
method

Chapter 16

Packet Switching

Message to be transmitted broken into units called


packets
Packet contains addressing information
Packets are carried on virtual circuits. Virtual circuits
are temporary connections over which the sending
and receiving stations communicate

Chapter 16

10

Connectionless Services

Before transmitting the packets, actual connection


not established between the sender and the receiver
Each packet considered as an independent unit
Each packet treated as a complete message
Packets follow different routes to reach destination

Chapter 16

11

Connection-oriented Services

Before transmitting packets, communication link


established
Packets follow same route to reach destination
For transmission, uses Switched Virtual Circuit
(SVC) or Permanent Virtual Circuit (PVC)

Chapter 16

12

Public Switched Telephone Network

Telephone system that uses copper wires to carry


analog voice data is called Public Switched
Telephone Network (PSTN)
Telephone services carried by the PSTN are often
called as Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS).

Chapter 16

Bi-directional
Ringing signals and dial-tone
Operator services

13

Structure of Telephone System I

Telephone system consists of following major


components:

Protocol needed for reliable connection
A protocol is needed at this layer to have a reliable
point-to-point connection. For reliability, uses Pointto-Point Protocol (PPP)
For establishing, maintaining and terminating the
link, uses Link Control Protocol (LCP)
For providing flexibility to PPP, uses Network
Control Protocol (NCP)

Chapter 16

the user devices and the network devices are
established and maintained.

equipment (DCE).

Chapter 16

23

Case Study I
The head office of the MoneyMaker bank in Mumbai
is integrated with all its branches using the FDDI
technology. All the transactions are carried out using
this network. Due to congestion in the network the
bank is losing critical data which has become a
major area of concern for the bank.

Chapter 16

24

Problem

Data loss due to congestion in FDDI network


technology.

Chapter 16

25

Suggested Solution

All the branches should be integrated using the


Frame Relay technology. Frame Relay provides a
congestion control mechanism.

Chapter 16

26

Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)

Cell-switching and multiplexing technology which


combines the benefits of both circuit switching and
packet switching
Transmits data, voice and video signals
simultaneously over the same communication lines
Before transmission, this information is converted
into fixed size cells

ISDN Devices

Chapter 16

32

ISDN Services

The information transmitted over the ISDN network


travels through the three logical digital communication
channels:
B-Channel - Carries user service information that
includes digital data, video and voice. It is the basic
user channel
D-Channel - Carries signals and data between the
user and the network.
H-Channel - Performs the same functions as that of
the B-Channels and operates at data rate of 64 Kbps.

Chapter 16

and file transfer
Provides two types of services as follows:

Chapter 16

Interactive Services
Distributive Services

34

Case Study II
All the branches of MoneyMaker bank have to send
daily transaction details to the Mumbai branch. The
size of this file is very large. The bank uses a regular
telephone line and a standard modem to send this
file.

Chapter 16

35

Problem

Slow data transmission

Chapter 16

36

Suggested Solution
Setup an ISDN. Certain things are required to set
up an ISDN service which includes, a ISDN
modem or router, Service Profile Identifiers
(SPIDs) from the telephone company, the name
of the switch or the network type the phone
company uses, and account information from the
ISDN service provider.

signals towards receivers

Advantages:

Chapter 16

Satellites can cover large areas of earth


It is commercially attractive

It is preferred instead of cables as maintenance


of cables is expensive and difficult
39

Polling

Communication technique which determines when a


terminal is ready to send data
Round robin sequence is used by the computer to
continuously interrogate its connected terminals
Communication system comprises of the following:

Chapter 16

A Master station
Number of slave stations each communicating with
the master station
A two-way transmission line connecting the master
station and the slave stations

40

ALOHA

A simple communications scheme in which each


transmitter or source in a network sends data
whenever there is a frame to send is called as
ALOHA
Next frame sent only if the first frame reaches the
destination successfully
If the frame fails to reach the receiver, it is sent
again
Types of ALOHA:

Chapter 16

Pure aloha
Slotted aloha
