Paper Abstract

This report covers the technological aspects of high performance parallel interface-6400 (HIPPI-6400), a forthcoming upgrade to the existing HIPPI protocol suite. The report concentrates on the technological advancements and situations that occur in a 6400 Megabit/s network and the solutions produced by the ANSI X3T11 committee. The first section of the report introduces HIPPI-6400 to familiarize the reader with basic concepts and lay ground work for future sections. Section 2 analyzes the transmission control link-layer embedded in HIPPI-6400 hardware. Section 3 describes the scheduled transfer protocol and connection setup that allows the user to partake of the entire 6400 Mbit bandwidth; followed by section 4 that describes the signaling interface. Section 5 provides an overview of switching requirements and constructs. Finally, section 6 concludes the paper, describes works in progress, including simulation, and points to further reading.
