Analysis of packet switches with input and output queuing
A single-stage nonblocking N*N packet switch with both output and input queuing is considered. The limited queuing at the output ports resolves output port contention partially. Overflow at theExpand

Performance of packet switches with input and output queueing
A single-stage nonblocking N*N packet switch is considered. In order to resolve a certain degree of output-port contention, the switching fabric allows limited queueing at the output ports. OverflowExpand
