Automatic Reconfiguration in Autonet

Thomas L. Rodeheffer and Michael D. Schroeder

Abstract

Autonet is a switch-based local area network using 100 Mbit/sfull-duplex point-to-point links. Crossbar switches are interconnectedto other switches and to host controllers in an arbitrary pattern.Switch hardware uses the destination address in each packet todetermine the proper outgoing link for the next step in the path fromsource to destination. Autonet automatically recalculates these forwardingpaths in response to failures and additions of network components.This automatic...
