    Eight specific architectures for asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) switching systems are compared: the Knockout, Sunshine, Lee's, Tandem Banyan, Shuffleout, and three variations on buffered Benes networks. The differences between switching systems, based on architectural choices rather than details of implementation are discussed. Several broad categories of systems based on high-level architecture...

    General models for a class of nonblocking architectures of asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) switches are described. Hardware aspects are discussed to show the implementation feasibility of the proposed switch architectures by means of the current technology. Performance issues are studied to point out the traffic bottlenecks of the different structures. It is shown that the classification of queue... View full abstract»

  • Flight of the FALCON (ATM)

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):50 - 56

    The fabric-based ATM oriented local connectivity (FALCON), an ATM-based customer premises network (CPN), is described. FALCON supports access using traditional local area networks (LANs) such as Ethernet and token rings and supports a LAN emulation mode for its native ATM interface. This service allows a set of terminals, workstations, and servers to connect to the switch-based network and to inte... View full abstract»

    Several approaches to photonic fast packet switching systems are presented. The wavelength-, time-, code-, and space-division approaches, including free-space photonic fast packet switching, are discussed. These approaches to photonic fast packet switching systems show that the research in this area is still in its infancy. Among various solutions, those based on a wavelength-division transport ne...

    Data services offered over cellular networks are described. The limitations of data transmission over analog cellular networks and the main challenges to be met in defining a standard for effective data transmission over digital cellular channels, devoting particular attention to North American developments, are discussed. Some of the technical characteristics of the analog and time-division multi... View full abstract»

    The different approaches being considered to build high-capacity lightwave networks are described. Two kinds of lightwave network architectures are examined: broadcast-and-select networks and wavelength-routing networks. A comparison of the two shows that broadcast-and-select networks may be more suitable for local area networks (LANs) and metropolitan area networks (MANs), while wavelength-routin...
