Abstract: front page image
(EN)A matching method for a multi-stage switch arrangement having a plurality of logically associated inputs and a plurality of outputs, wherein the matching method comprises the steps of: for each logical association of inputs, aggregating service requests from every one of the inputs which form said logical association; resolving contention for said aggregated service requests between all of the logical associations to the outputs of the switch arrangement; and repeating the above steps in the matching method within each logical association for a subset of the inputs forming each said logical association until contention is resolved between the individual inputs of the switch arrangement and the outputs of the switch arrangement.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé de mise en correspondance pour dispositif de commutation à multiples étages comprenant une pluralité d'entrées associées de manière logique et une pluralité de sorties, ledit procédé de mise en correspondance consistant, pour chaque association logique d'entrées, à regrouper les demandes de service de chaque entrée formant ladite association logique; à résoudre les conflits desdites demandes de service regroupées entre toutes les associations logiques du dispositif de commutation; et à répéter lesdites étapes du procédé de mise en correspondance dans chaque association logique pour un sous-ensemble d'entrées formant chaque association logique jusqu'à la résolution des conflits entre les entrées individuelles du dispositif de commutation et les sorties du dispositif de commutation.
