Who uses packet switching?

Packet switching can be used by many devices: printers, scanners, video cameras, etc.

Both LANs and WANs use packet switching.

The Internet is a packet switching system--packets from many machines traverse the Internet at the same time.

A receiver reassembles the original message from the packets that arrive.
