In a system utilizing packet communication techniques of message transmission, all communication between the units comprising the system is through discrete blocks of information conveyed in packets. Interconnection structures in such systems can range from bus and crossbar structures to complex routing networks. A comparative analysis of a number of interconnection structures for packet communication systems is presented and tradeoffs between the various structures in terms of cost and performance are analytically examined.
