  • Patent number: 5654695
    Abstract: A multi-stage architecture for providing a single switching component in multiplicity to create a single network capable of performing a multiplicity of functions. One function of the disclosed network is to circumvent the traditional blocking problems in multi-stage networks by implementing ALTERNATE PATHS between devices within the same network. This permits a non-blocked path between 2 devices to be found by rearrangeability--the act of trying or searching different alternate paths until a non-blocked connection is established. A second network function permits a special high priority mode of transfer which will guarantee that the connection will be made to an idle device as rapidly as possible.
