The Data Vortex, an All Optical Path Multicomputer Interconnection Network

  title={The Data Vortex, an All Optical Path Multicomputer Interconnection Network},
  author={Cory Hawkins and Benjamin A. Small and D. Scott Wills and Keren Bergman},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems},
All optical path interconnection networks employing dense wavelength division multiplexing can provide vast improvements in supercomputer performance. However, the lack of efficient optical buffering requires investigation of new topologies and routing techniques. This paper introduces and evaluates the data vortex optical switching architecture which uses cylindrical routing paths as a packet buffering alternative. In addition, the impact of the number of angles on the overall network… CONTINUE READING
