The paper describes several improvements to a nonblocking copy network proposed previously for multicast packet switching. The improvements provide a complete solution to some system problems inherent in multicasting. The input fairness problem caused by overflow is solved by a cyclic running adder network (CRAN), which can calculate running sums of copy requests starting from any input port. The starting point can change adaptively in every time slot based on the overflow condition of the previous time slot. The CRAN also serves as a multicast traffic controller to regulate the overall copy requests. The throughput of a multicast switch can be improved substantially if partial service of copy request is implemented when overflow occurs. Call-splitting can also be implemented by the CRAN in a straightforward manner. Nonuniform distribution of replicated packets at outputs of the copy network may affect the performance of the following routing network. This output fairness problem due to underflow is solved by cyclically shifting the copy packets in every time slot. An approximate queueing model is developed to analyze the performance of this improved copy network. It shows that if the loading on each output of the copy network is maintained below 80%, the average packet delay in an input buffer would be less than two time slots
