A switched network consists of a series of intermediate nodes called switches. Switches are H/W and/or S/W devices capable of creating temporary connections between two or more devices linked to the switch not to each other.

Circuit switching creates direct physical connection between two devices.—is a device with n inputs and m outputs that creates temporary connection between an input link and an output link—no of inputs does not have to match no of outputs An n by n folded switch can connect n lines in full duplex mode.
