Project Title: Performance evaluation of a High-Speed Switch with Multicasting
This project is on performance evaluation of a high speed switch
architecture versus change in switch size, traffic load, and traffic
A simulator was developed in previous projects a switch that allows
both unicast and multicast requests be handeled in a uniform manner.
This refers to the ability of duplicating a incoming request to a
an arbitrary group of output ports.
The switch is based on the following features:
(1) low switching delay,
(2) low probability of loss, and
(3) simple hardware.
In this project the students will review the simulator program (C)
and carry out testing and debugging with respect to both types of
The simulator is useful for evaluate performance under a variety of
traffic conditions like those generated in dynamic media communications.
The student will: (1) review switch architectures that meet the
above constraints, (2) study the proposed switching methods,
(3) test and debug the switch simulator (written in C),
and (4) carry out performance evaluation for a set of traffic conditions.
