Eventhough conventional multistage switch architecture such as Banyan switch can support high speed capacity, but it still has high latency and is not scalable. Moreover, under non-uniform traffic, blocking occurs. Therefore, a new switch architecture based on multi-dimensional crossbar (MDXB) switch is introduced, as a better solution. MDXB switch is an interconnection among crossbar switches into multi-dimension network. In this paper, we also propose a new node configuration and routing algorithm used in MDXB switch to achieve even lower packet loss rate. The simulation results shown that MDXB switch achieves much higher throughput under non-uniform traffic pattern.
