An Efficient Routing Algorithm for Mesh-Hypercube (M-H) Networks

  title={An Efficient Routing Algorithm for Mesh-Hypercube (M-H) Networks},
  author={Syed Sajjad Rizvi and Khaled M. Elleithy and Aasia Riasat},
This paper presents an efficient routing algorithm for the Mesh-Hypercube (M-H) network. The M-H network is one of the new interconnection networking techniques use to build high performance parallel computers. The combination of M-H networks offers high connectivity among multiple nodes, fault-tolerance, and load scalability. However, the performance of M-H networks may degrade significantly in the presence of frequent link or node failures. When a link or node failure occurs, neither the…

An Alternative Routing Algorithm for Hex-Cell Network
This paper proposes a new routing algorithm for Hex-Cell network based on a new addressing mode which utilises the addresses of the two neighbours’ cells of each source and destination nodes.
Multilayer Hex-Cells: A New Class of Hex-Cell Interconnection Networks for Massively Parallel Systems
An interesting feature of the proposed Multilayer Hex-Cell is that it maintains a constant network degree regardless of the increase in the network size degree which facilitates modularity in building blocks of scalable systems.


An optical multi-mesh hypercube: a scalable optical interconnection network for massively parallel computing
This paper presents the OMMH topology, analyzes its architectural properties and potentials for massively parallel computing, and compares it to the hypercube, and presents a three-dimensional optical design methodology based on free-space optics.
Hard-Potato routing
We present the first hot-potato routing algorithm for the n x n mesh whose running time on any "hard" (i.e., f~(n)) "many-to-one" batch routing problem is, with high probability, within a

A new interconnection network topology, called varietal hypercube for large scale multicomputer systems, is proposed, which has most of the desirable properties of the hypercube, including recursive structure, partionability, strong connectivity, and the ability to embed other architectures such as ring and mesh.
Synchronizing Hypercube Networks in the Presence of Faults
A new hardware method developed to synchronize hypercube networks that can sustain one fault and tolerate up to m/spl ges/2 Byzantine faults as long as the connectivity of the hypercube, n, is greater than max{2m+1,3m-2).
Tight bounds for oblivious routing in the hypercube
We prove that in anyN-node communication network with maximum degreed, any deterministic oblivious algorithm for routing an arbitrary permutation requires Ω(√N/d) parallel communication steps in the
