Minimizing the Switch and Link Conflicts in an Optical Multi-Stage Interconnection Network
Multistage Interconnection Networks (MINs) are very popular in switching and communication applications. A MIN connects N inputs to N outputs and is referred as an N × N MIN; having size N. Optical Multistage Interconnection Network (OMIN) represents an important class of Interconnection networks. Crosstalk is the basic problem of OMIN. Switch Conflict and Link Conflict are the two main reason of crosstalk. In this paper, the authors are considering both problems. A number of techniques like Optical window, Improved Window, Heuristic, Genetic, and Zero have been proposed earlier in this research domain. In this paper, they have proposed two algorithms called Address Selection Algorithm and Route Selection Algorithm (RSA).
