Title (EN) MULTICASTING IN A FPS SWITCH
(FR) ENVOI MULTIDESTINATAIRE POUR UN COMMUTATEUR DE RESEAU A COMMUTATION RAPIDE DE PAQUETS
Abstract:
(EN) A system and network are disclosed for providing multicasting capability within a packet switched network, such as FPS or ATM. Each packet's header includes a type indicator bit or bits. One form of type indicator indicates normal port to port switching: a second form indicates switching to a single port, and then to each of a set of outputs defined by the address portion of the header via a separate connection. Contention is thereby reduced in the switching fabric itself.
(FR) Système et procédés destinés à assurer un envoi multidestinataire au sein d'un réseau à commutation de paquets tel qu'un réseau à commutation rapide de paquets ou à mode de transfert asynchrone. L'en-tête de chaque paquet comprend un ou plusieurs bits indicateurs de type. Un premier type d'indicateur indique la commutation port d'entrée/port de sortie normale; un second type d'indicateur indique la commutation vers un seul port, puis vers chaque sortie d'un ensemble de sorties défini par la partie adresse de l'en-tête par l'intermédiaire d'une liaison séparée. Ainsi, on évite les conflits au sein du réseau de commutation.
