Abstract

Several recent studies have revealed that pipelined circuit switching (PCS) can provide superior performance characteristics over wormhole routing. This paper proposes an original analytical model of PCS in k-ary n- cube networks augmented with virtual channel support. The model uses random walk theory to analyse the backtracking actions of the header flit during the path setup phase in PCS, and M/G/l queueing systems to compute the mean waiting time that a message experiences at a source before entering the network. Results from simulation experiments show close agreement to those predicted by the model.
