AcceleRoute is a patent family for a network design that features a completely bufferless core that can offer extremely low latency and massive scalability in a simple architecture.
A fused network is an architectural method that was invented and patented by network designer, Dr. Maged Beshai as part of the AcceleRoute patent portfolio. It is used to achieve substantially larger scalability of a Spine and Leaf network.
Global time alignment is a key feature of AcceleRoute that allows every Access Node on the network to intercommunicate through a vast lineup of coherent time slots which eliminates the need for buffering in the network core.
Yes, AcceleRoute would fit into the Spine and Leaf architecture category however it offers a number of significant advancements over conventional Spine and Leaf implementations that enable much larger and geographically distributed scalability.
An AcceleRoute core switch element can be designed using conventional ICs typically found in ethernet switches and routers. Once built, this core switching element can be used to build out a large capacity symmetrical bufferless core network. The AcceleRoute architecture has also been designed to construct a fully optical network that would require the [...]
