An ATM Routing and Concentration Chip for a Scalable Multicast ATM Switch

Abstract

We have proposed a new architecture for building a scalable multicast ATM switch from a few tens to a few thousands of input/output ports. The switch, called the Abacus switch, employs input and output buffering schemes. Cell replication, cell routing, and output contention resolution are all performed in a distributed way so that the switch can be scaled… (More)
