Permanent Virtual Circuit

A Permanent Virtual Circuit is a permanently established logical connection between two devices on a packet switched network. Examples of PVC can be found on ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) and Frame Relay networks. The advantage of a PVC over a SVC (Switched Virtual Circuit) is the saving of bandwidth associated with circuit establishment and tear down.
