    - Message switching is a network switching technique in which data is routed in its entirely from the source to the destination.

    - The message-switched network stores and delays the whole message.

    - If the entire network's resources are engaged or the network becomes blocked, the message-switched network stores and delays the message until the resources become available for effective transmission of the message.

    - Message switching uses Geographical addressing scheme and Packet switching uses Hierarchical addressing scheme .

    - In geographical scheme, sending a message selectively only to specific subareas that are defined by latitude and longitude.
