The Hi-Ring architecture for datacentre networks

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This paper summarizes recent work on a hierarchical ring-based network architecture (Hi-Ring) for datacentre and short-range applications. The architecture allows leveraging benefits of optical switching technologies while maintaining a high level of connection granularity. We discuss results of optical switching in the various physical dimensions incorporated in the hierarchical nodes and we discuss recent results on global synchronisation of nodes in a ring topology.
