Data transmission techniques Packet switching This is a data transmission technique which involves transmitting and routing of data as packet segments sent rapidly and sequentially over a communication channel. It involves breaking the data into individual segments known as packets which are transmitted individually and then re-assembled when they reach the destination computer. The packets are labeled to show where they come from and where they are to go. Packets are forwarded from one computer to another until they arrive at their destination. If any are lost, they are re-sent by the originator. The recipient computer acknowledges receipt of packets to eliminate unnecessary

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
