Abstract

This article proposes a new high-speed network architecture called dynamic burst transfer time-slot-base network (DBTN). The DBTN network is based on circuit-switched network technology. A routing tag is attached to a burst at an ingress edge node and the burst is self-routed in a DBTN network, the circuit of which is created dynamically by the routing tag. The routing tag, which is called time-slots-relay, consists of link identifiers from the ingress to the egress nodes and is used to create the circuit. Subsequent data is switched over the circuit being created in an on-the-fly fashion. Each link identifier is loaded into the address control memory (ACM) of each circuit switching node, and thereby the circuit to the destination is created dynamically. Subsequent user data follows immediately after the time-slots-relay and is sent over the established circuit. Thus short-lived fairly large data transfers such as WWW traffic are efficiently carried. A circuit between adjacent nodes is created and released dynamically so bandwidth efficiency is improved compared with conventional circuit-switched networks. Time division multiplexing of the circuit-switched network is utilized so there is no delay jitter or loss within a burst. We address the performance of DBTN switches and report the experimental system.
