Network operators need high-capacity router architectures that can offer scalability, provide throughput guarantees, and maintain packet ordering. However, current centralized crossbar-based architectures cannot scale to fast line rates and high port counts. On the other hand, while load-balanced switch architectures that rely on two identical stages of fixed configuration meshes appear to be an effective way to scale Internet routers to very high capacities, they incur a large worst-case… CONTINUE READING
