Both QoS support and congestion management techniques become essential to achieve good network performance in current high-speed interconnection networks. The most effective techniques traditionally considered for both issues, however, require too many resources for being implemented. In this paper we propose a new cost-effective switch architecture able to face the challenges of congestion management and, at the same time, to provide QoS. The efficiency of our proposal is based on using the resources (queues) used by RECN (an efficient Head-Of-Line blocking elimination technique) also for QoS support, without increasing queue requirements. Provided results show that the new switch architecture is able to guarantee QoS levels without any degradation due to congestion situations.
