    A new switching architecture is proposed based on the tradeoffs of modern VLSI technology-inexpensive memory and 2-dimensional layout structures. Today, it is economically feasible to preallocate buffer space individually to each virtual circuit in every node, so that "congestion" ceases to have negative effects. On the contrary, when some low-priority circuits offer more traffic than the network ... View full abstract»

    A key point in realizing broadband switching networks is architectual efficiency for switching various types of traffic with speeds ranging from several kbits/s to several Mbits/s. We propose a new switching technique, that is, a high-speed time division switching based on the single slot switching technique. This technique has several switching modules corresponding to standardized bit rates of t... View full abstract»

    A simple control algorithm is proposed for a three-stage rearrangeable switching network with time division multiplexed links. The nonblocking condition is shown for the rearrangeable network controlled by the proposed algorithm. The rearrangeable nonblocking network controlled by the proposed method is more cost effective in hardware than a strictly nonblocking network for a large number of chann... View full abstract»

    A new, high-performance packet-switching architecture, called the Knockout Switch, is proposed. The Knockout Switch uses a fully interconnected switch fabric topology (i.e., each input has a direct path to every output) so that no switch blocking occurs where packets destined for one output interfere with (i.e., block or delay) packets going to different Outputs. It is only at each output of the s... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a switching network which is service independent and able to transport services of any bit rate, based on the fast packet switching concept. The control of the switching network is completely distributed; the path select is not centrally controlled, but gradually performed as the control packet is passing through the switching network. The switching network is a multistage net... View full abstract»
