Unformatted text preview: output port receives at most one request, then all these connections can be established in the switch. Crossbar switching is non-blocking. Discuss if TSI (time slot interchange) architecture is non-blocking or not. TSI architecture is a non-blocking switch, because we still have an N-to-N output at the output, the only thing that TSI does is to modify the output sequence of the input. Question 3. The following architecture is a combination of TSI and crossbar, where each blue arrow is a TDM link. Discuss if it is possible to use a crossbar architecture plus multiplexers/de-multiplexers to build a switch and avoid the use of TSI? If yes, suppose each TDM link has four time slots (four user channels), draw a figure to show your design. Yes,...
