Recent High-Performance Switching Techniques

Vruti S. Joshi



The main purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of research in the area of modern High-Performance switching in telecommunication network. The rapid evolution in the field of telecommunications has led to the appearance of new switching technologies to support a variety of communication services with a broad range of transmission rates in a common, unified integrated services network. At the same time, the progress in the field of VSLI technology has brought up new design principles of high-performance, high-capacity switching fabrics to be used in the integrated networks of the future. Most of the recent proposals for such high-performance switching fabrics have been based on a principle known as fast packet switching. This principle employs a high degree of parallelism, distributed control, and routing performed at the hardware level. Our intention is to give a descriptive overview of the major activities in this rapidly evolving field of telecommunications.


Keywords: High-Performance switching, fast packet switching, high degree of parallelism, distributed control, routing.
