I have implemented hundreds of networks and designed them over the years
but I have not a clue on these questions.
I realize that this is much more towards hardware design, but I know
that many of us have background there.
Networking design 101
> problem 3: clearly illustrate the design of a knockout
> crossbar switch
> that enables an output port to choose packets from 9 input ports
> simultaneously in a 12x12 switch. your switch design must use
> the FEWEST
> number of 2x2 switching elements.
> problem 4: consider the network topology given in figure 2.
> the label for
> each of the links in the figure denotes the delay experience
> by any packet
> traversing the link (in either direction). each node is assumed to
> initially know the delays of its outgoing links and all links
> are assumed
> to be bi-directional. clearly show the routing table of node A step by
> step, from the initial state to the final state (when the
> routing table
> stabilizes), for the following two cases:
> o when the routing algorithm is the Distance Vector algorithm
> o when the routing algorithm is the Link State algorithm
