The Clos networks are a class of multistage switching network topologies that provide alternate paths between inputs and outputs, making it possible to minimize or eliminate the blocking that can otherwise occur in such networks. In his seminal paper in the Bell System Technical Journal in 1953, Charles Clos showed how these networks could be configured to make them nonblocking and effectively launched the systematic study of switching system performance, a field that has developed a rich… CONTINUE READING
