ATM Switches with the Guaranteed-Rate Property
- 57 Downloads
In this chapter, ATM switches are considered. Generic “single-stage” ATM switch design goals will be outlined. Switch fabric designs are not explored; nonblocking crossbar fabrics will be implicitly assumed throughout this chapter. A focus of the chapter is to describe ATM switches that have a guaranteed-rate property and are feasible at high transmission speeds. The handling of best-effort flows is also considered with an eye toward IP data applications. More comprehensive overviews of packet switching are given in [142, 9, 110].
