Source independence, Computer Networking

Next hop to receiver does not relay on source of packet. This phenomenon is known 'Source Independence'. It has various benefits. It gives efficient and fast routing. Packet switch have not completed information about all receivers in spite it just has immediate hop so reduces total information and gain dynamic robustness. The network can start to function even if topology modifies without notifying whole network.
