A survey on core switch designs and algorithms


Tremendous amounts of effort have gone into research on switch designs and architectures. This survey attempts to sketch the evolution of the modern switch architectures. The survey covers the literature over the period 1987-2008 on switch architectures. Starting with the simple crossbar switch, we explore various architectures such as Output queueing, Input queueing, Combined Input/Output queueing, buffered crosspoint etc., that have evolved during this period. We discuss the pros and cons of these designs, so as to shed light on the path of evolution of switch architecture.
