  Virtual circuit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A virtual circuit (VC) is a communications arrangement in which data from a source user may be passed to a destination user over more than one real communications circuit during a single period of communication, but the switching is hidden from the users.
Switched virtual circuits (SVC) are generally set up on a per-call basis and are disconnected when the call is terminated; however, a permanent virtual circuit (PVC) can be established as an option to provide a dedicated circuit link between two facilities.
A permanent virtual circuit (PVC) is a virtual circuit established for repeated use between the same data terminal equipments (DTE).

 Switching technology
In circuit switching, resources remain allocated during the full length of a communication, after a circuit is established and until the circuit is terminated and the allocated resources are freed.
During circuit establishment, the set of switches and links on the path between the sender and the receiver is determined and messages are exchanged on all the links between the two end hosts of the communication in order to make the resource allocation and build the routing tables.
Virtual circuit packet switching (VC-switching) is a packet switching technique which merges datagram packet switching and circuit switching to extract both of their advantages.

 OOPic Programmers Guide: CHAPTER 3 - Your first Virtual Circuit
A Virtual Circuit is a function in an OOPic that appears to be a physical discrete electronic circuit, but is actually the OOPic operating system emulating the functionality of the circuit.
Virtual Circuits are created by progmatically linking together a set of OOPic Objects in the same methodology as one would physically link together a set of electronic components.
The function of this process is similar to that of the electrical circuit between a light switch and a light.

 SYSTEM MODEL
A virtual path is established by the network to simplify routing by grouping virtual circuits [8].
We assume that a virtual path is set up for every source-destination pair, and all virtual circuits using a virtual path are for the same source-destination pair.
Thus when a call arrives at the access to the network it is assigned a virtual circuit, which is amalgamated on one virtual path with the virtual circuits for other calls from that source to destination.

Secondly, rather than expending the time and computational resources in the network to establish such a virtual circuit, a single 'datagram' packet can be sent to any X.25 device, if it has the full X.25 addresses of the sender and receiver attached to it.
The other component of the cost to the customer is the virtual circuits which the carrier sets up within the carrier's switches.
Nor does it have virtual circuits, since each packet is an independent 'datagram' and is routed separately.

In virtual circuit packet switching, an initial setup phase is used to set up a fixed route between the intermediate nodes for all packets which are exchanged during a session between the end nodes (analogous to the circuit-switched telephony network).
Delays are more variable than they are with a dedicated circuit, however, since several virtual circuits may compete for the same resources.
The most common form of virtual circuit network were ATM and X.25, which for a while were commonly used for public packet data networks.
