Summary

Chapter 6 covers numerous switch designs based on the knockout principle, including knockout switch, the concentration principle, construction of concentrators, channel grouping and the generalized knockout principle, the two-stage multicast output buffered ATM switch (MOBAS) and the multicast knockout principle, and a fault-tolerant multicast output-buffered ATM switch.
