Making Parallel Packet Switches Practical


A parallel packet switch (PPS) is a switch in which the memories run slower than the line rate. Arriving packets are spread (or load-balanced) packet-by-packet over multiple slower-speed packet switches. It is already known that with a speedup of , a PPS can theoretically mimic a FCFS output-queued (OQ) switch. However, the theory relies on a centralized… (More)
