What is a Packet Switched Network (PSN)?

A packet switched network (PSN) is a computer communications network that groups and sends data in the form of small packets. It enables sending of data packets between a source and destination node over a channel that is shared between multiple users and/or applications. A packet switched is also known as a connectionless network, as it does not create a permanent connection between a source and destination node.
