Paper Abstract

Shufflenet and MONET are compared in order to find the best solutions as regards the traffic management performance. Using simple mathematics, throughput and efficiency of both networks are derived and numerically evaluated under the constraint of a limited number of overall channels. It is shown that when the number of users is small shufflenet exhibits the best behavior, but MONETs only are able to connect a large number of users with satisfactory performance. Furthermore, the latter become more and more efficient when the hypothesis of uniform traffic is removed.
