The effectiveness of a parallel or distributed system is often determined by its communication network. In order to operate more efficiently a network is required to provide low latency and be able to handle large amount of traffic. This paper introduces a new fault-tolerant Multistage Interconnection Networks (MIN) named as Modified Augmented Baseline Network (MABN). Performance of the proposed network is analysed in terms of permutation passibility, reliability and cost. The performance comparison of the MABN with ABN shows the significant improvement of MABN over existing Augmented Baseline Network (ABN).
