The fast deployment of broadband networks and the evolution of communication services has revealed the importance of a network-wide availability of multicast communications, that is from one source to multiple destinations. This paper considers three-stage switching networks able to support multicast traffic, i.e. connections in which one inlet of a node is connected to more than one outlet of the node at the same time. An analytical model is developed here that evaluates the blocking… CONTINUE READING
