Title: BUS ARCHITECTURE OF A CROSS-CONNECT DEVICE
Abstract:
For the data transmission between the transmission units contained in a cross-connect device there is used a frame architecture where the frame structure of a certain parallel bus comprises a first integer number of blocks comprised of time slots. Each block can independently of other blocks be allocated to represent a certain link input from an external transmission system via one transmission unit. Data input from the link of the external transmission system is transferred in a block representing said link input from the external transmission system. The frame structure comprises further a second integer number of time slots in order to transfer internal information of the cross-connect device.
