Paper Abstract

The purpose of this paper is two-fold: (a) To review the need for and the requirements of FOLAN interconnects; and (b) To present Tree-Net, a novel, multilevel, interconnected FOLAN architecture. We first review the basic FOLAN architectures and their requirements. Then, we discuss the problem of FOLAN interconnection and review some interconnect alternatives. Finally, we introduce Tree-Net, as an example of interconnect scheme, and evaluate its performance characteristics.
