Performance Aspects of Some Switching Networks

Zbigniew Hulicki

Abstract

The intention of this paper is to examine the performance and reliability aspects of switching fabrics which are used for scalable high-performance routers. Topology and capabilities of switching fabrics are discussed, followed by an examination of the performance vs.– reliability trade-off in diverse scenarios of possible failures. It has been shown that the switching fabric based on the PM2I type multistage interconnection network (MIN) outperforms those based on the cube type MIN under any failure scenario. The simulation results presented should be helpful in predicting the performance vs.– reliability trade-off before actual fabrication of the switching fabric.
