The strategies utilised and used on a big network are known as switching techniques. When these huge networks need to move packets from source to destination, i.e. from sender to receiver, switching techniques come into play.

The store-and-forward method, the fragment-free approach, and the cut-through method are the three types of switching techniques.

For voice applications, circuit switching was created. The best example of circuit switching is the telephone. A virtual path between the called subscriber and the calling subscriber is established over the network before a user can initiate a call. The waiting period is excessive, and no data is transferred.

Switching's objective is to provide interconnection between all nodes on a network without requiring single connections between each pair of nodes. As a result, we need switching technology that allows us to build connectivity as and when we need it.

Connectionless packet switching, also known as datagram switching, and connection-oriented packet switching, also known as virtual circuit switching, are two types of packet switching. Ethernet, Internet Protocol (IP), and the User Datagram Protocol are examples of connectionless systems (UDP).
