A modification of the classical banyan switching network architecture is called the dilated slipped banyan. This architecture is recursive and switching networks of any size perform permutation switching under a simple switching rule. They also exhibit column-control and dilation, properties that are particularly relevant to guided-wave and free-space photonic technologies. A photonic switching network, with this dilated slipped banyan architecture, is proposed as the hub of an all-optical active-star local-area network. The switching assignment at this hub is time-multiplexed on a fixed schedule that is known to all the terminals. Then, this all-optical local-area network provides the equivalent of full-connectivity with high effectively simultaneous data rates between every pair of terminals. A 16-terminal local-area network, with 100 Mb/s of contention-free bandwidth between every pair of terminals, is feasible today. © 1991 IEEE
