This letter analyzes the saturated throughput for multicast switches with multiple input queues per input port. Under the assumptions of a Poisson uniform traffic model and random packet scheduling policy, we derive the multicast switch saturated throughput under different fanouts. To verify the analysis, extensive simulations are conducted with different switch sizes and fanouts. It is shown that the theoretical analysis and the simulation results have a discrepancy less than 1.9%. Results from this letter can be used as a guidance to design the optimal queuing for multicast switches.
