Paper Abstract

AS businesses become more dependent on IP networks, lots of real-time services are adopted and high availability in networks has become increasingly critical. With the development of carrier grade ethernet, the requirements of high speed metro ethernet device are more urgently. In order to reach the capacity of hundreds of Gbps or Tbps, most of core ethernet switches almost adopted distributed control architecture and large capacity forwarding fabric. When distributed switch works, they always have one CE and many FE. There for, it shows the feature of multicast with one sender and many receivers. It is deserved research for us how to apply reliable multicast to distributed switch inner communication system. In this paper, we present the general architecture of a distributed ethernet switch, focusing on analysis the model of internal communication subsystem. According to its character, a novel reliable multicast communication mechanism based on FEC recovery algorithm has been applied and evaluated in experiment.
