Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR FLEXIBLE INTERFACE BYPASS OPTIONS IN SWITCHES
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET DISPOSITIF POUR DES OPTIONS DE DÉRIVATION À INTERFACE SOUPLE DANS DES COMMUTATEURS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A network switching module (12) includes N communication port modules (104-0,..., 104-5) that send and receive data packets that include physical layer addresses. A switch core module (20) routes the data packets between N-2 of the communication port modules based on the physical layer addresses. A bypass module (110) selectively routes the data packets between two of the communication port modules (104-4A, 104-4B) such that the data packets bypass the switch core module (20). N is an integer greater than or equal to 4.
(FR)L'invention concerne un module de commutation de réseau comprenant N modules de port de communication transmettant et recevant des paquets de données comprenant des adresses de couche physique. Un module central de commutation achemine les paquets de données entre N-2 des modules de port de communication sur la base des adresses de couche physique. Un module de dérivation achemine sélectivement les paquets de données entre deux des modules de port de communication de telle sorte que les paquets de données contournent le module central de commutation. N est un nombre entier supérieur ou égal à 4.
