    A packet-switched system architecture based on the combination of a single-chip output-buffered switch element and input queues that sort arriving packets on a per-output-port basis is proposed. Scheduling is performed in a distributed two-stage approach. Independent arbiters at each of the inputs resolve input contention. Whereas the output-buffered switch element resolves output contention. As a... View full abstract»

  • Scalable multi-QoS IP+ATM switch router architecture

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):86 - 92
    Cited by:  Papers (6)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (112 KB)

    This article proposes a scalable multi-QoS IP+ATM switch router architecture. The proposed switch router is based on a core ATM switching system with multi-QoS capability. Forwarding engines and a routing engine are attached in front of the line cards of the ATM switching system. The FEs and RE are interconnected with each other via internal VCs. A novel longest matching algorithm is employed at t... View full abstract»

    While the Internet has quietly served as a research and education vehicle for more than two decades, the last few years have witnessed its tremendous growth and its great potential for providing a wide variety of services. As a result, input-queued switching architectures, because of their distinguished advantage in building scalable switches, are currently receiving a lot of attention from both a...

  • Bridging core and edge networks for residential subscribers

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):115 - 121
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (100 KB)

    We survey various internetworking scenarios between core and edge networks for residential users. The focus is not on individual protocols. Instead we try to show how these protocols can work together. We divide an end-to-end network into core networks and edge networks. We then consider two options for core networks: ATM-based and IP/MPLS-based. For each core/edge architecture, we further conside... View full abstract»

    The International Telecommunication Union launched the third-generation project in 1986 with the aim to provide global personal communication using an inexpensive mobile terminal that can truly facilitate communication "anywhere, anytime". In previous years, standardization activities toward IMT-2000 have accelerated toward concrete specifications. By June 1998, a total of 15 proposals from around... View full abstract»

    Large input-output buffering with a moderate speedup has been widely considered as the most feasible solution for large-capacity switches. We propose a new terabit per second packet switch and call it the Saturn switch. It uses a simple dual round-robin arbitration scheme to schedule packets, and achieves high throughput and low statistical delay bound. It employs a bit-sliced crossbar fabric to s...

    The forthcoming mobile communication systems are expected to provide a wide variety of services, from high-quality voice to high-definition videos, through high data rate wireless channels anywhere in the world. The high data rate requires broad frequency bands, and sufficient broadband can be achieved in higher frequency bands such as microwave, Ka-band, and millimeter-wave. Broadband wireless ch...
