Definition: PPS

(Packets Per Second) The measurement of activity in a packet-switched network. For example, local area networks (LANs) and the Internet break all data, no matter what their content, into individual packets before transmitting them. Each packet contains source and destination addresses, and routers are rated for performance by the number of packets they can forward in one second based on the destination address. See packet switching, router and traffic.
