Upper bounds are given on the timeT needed to evacuatek packets from a synchronous packet network using deflection routing, whereby all packets that arrive at a node during one time slot leave the node during the next slot. For example,T≤n+2(k−1) for a binaryn-cube network when priority is given to packets closer to their destination, and for a single destination networkT is less than or equal to the network diameter plusk−1 times the network deflection index. Deflection routing for one pass through an omega network is also considered.
