Reliable Communication
Circuit switching network Reliable communication requires noise-tolerant transmission Packet switching network Reliable communication requires both noise-tolerant transmission and contention-tolerant switching

Quantization of Communication Systems
Transmission—from analog channel to digital channel Sampling Theorem of Bandlimited Signal (Whittakev 1915; Nyquist, 1928; Kotelnikou, 1933; Shannon, 1948) Switching—from circuit switching to packet switching Doubly Stochastic Traffic Matrix Decomposition (Hall 1935; Birkhoff-von Neumann, 1946)

Noise vs. Contention Transmission channel with noise
Source information is a function of time, errors corrected by providing more signal space Noise is tamed by error correcting code Packet switching with contention Source information f(i) is a function of space, errors corrected by providing more time Contention is tamed by delay, buffering or deflection Connection request f(i)= j 0111 0001 Message=0101 0101 0100 1101 Delay due to buffering or deflection

Output Contention and Carried Load
Nonblocking switch with uniformly distributed destination address ρ: offered load ρ’: carried load 1 1 N-1 N-1 The difference between offered load and carried load reflects the degree of contention

Proposition on Signal Power of Switch
(V. Benes 63) The energy of connecting network is the number of calls in progress ( carried load ) The signal power Sp of an N×N crossbar switch is the number of packets carried by outputs, and noise power Np=N- Sp Pseudo Signal-to-Noise Ratio (PSNR)

Clos Network with Deflection Routing
Route the packets in C(n,n,k) and C(k,k,n) alternately k-1 n-1 kxk nxn C(n, n, k) C(k, k, n) Encoding output port addresses in C(n, n, k) Destination: D = nQ1 + R1 Output module number: Output port number: Encoding output port addresses in C(k, k, n) Destination: D = kQ2 + R2 Routing Tag = (Q1,R1, Q2,R2)

Loss Probability versus Network Length
The loss probability of deflection Clos network is an exponential function of network length

Shannon’s Noisy Channel Coding Theorem
Given a noisy channel with information capacity C and information transmitted at rate R If R<C, there exists a coding technique which allows the probability of error at the receiver to be made arbitrarily small. If R>C, the probability of error at the receiver increases without bound.

Binary Symmetric Channel
The Binary Symmetric Channel(BSC) with cross probability q=1-p‹½ has capacity There exist encoding E and decoding D functions If the rate R=k/n=C-δ for some δ>0. The error probability is bounded by If R=k/n=C+ δ for some δ>0, the error probability is unbounded 1 p q p

Edge Coloring of Bipartite Graph
A Regular bipartite graph G with vertex-degree m satisfies Hall’s condition Let A ⊆ VI be a set of inputs, NA = {b | (a,b) ∈ E, a∈A} , since edges terminate on vertices in A must be terminated on NA at the other end.Then m|NA| ≥ m|A|, so |NA| ≥ |A|
