Because the Internet traffic that will be major traffic of broadband integrated services digital networks is bursty when cells are being switched within the multistage switching network, it has a higher possibility that multiple cells arriving simultaneously at a switching element through different incoming links may have to be forwarded along the same outgoing link. In this paper, we propose a high-performance large-scale ATM switch dealing with such link contention problem. It is a new unbuffered augmented Banyan network using fully adaptive selfrouting control: the deflection self-routing Banyan network. To utilize all the links of the network as alternate paths, we employ the deflection-routing algorithm in each switching element, such that cells failing to get selected for the intended link are sent along different links, in the willing that they later return, or detour the contended link and continue their journey to the destination. Cells are never dropped within the switching network, whereas the switch has no multiple cell buffers. The proposed routing is as simple as that of the generic Banyan network, and all the switch elements (SE’s) have a uniform structure. To design proposed the network and its self-routing, we use topological properties that all the SE’s of the Banyan network are arranged in a regular pattern topologically. We formulate and prove these properties through an algebraic formalism. We also ran a performance analysis to provide quantitative comparison against the Banyan network and the replicated Banyan networks. As a result, we show that the new network has a far better performance and scalability than the other networks.
