Source Routing

Source routing is a technique used in local-area networks (LANs) that allows senders to specify the route that data packets take as they travel through a network. Senders can more easily troubleshoot data transmission since the path is not random like it is with traditional data packet routing.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Source Routing

Businesses of every size can benefit from source routing since it minimizes problems and gives the sender more control over the route that the data takes to and from its destination.
