Summary Performance analysis of a cell scheduling algorithm for an input-queued ATM switch is presented in this paper. The interconnection network of the ATM switch is internally nonblocking and each input port maintains a separate queue for each output port so as to reduce the head-of-line (HOL) blocking of conventional input queuing switches. Each input is allowed to send only one cell per time slot, and each output port is allowed to accept only one cell per time slot. The cells to be transmitted in a time slot are selected using a fast, fair and efficient scheduling algorithm called iSLIP. Using a tagged input queue approach, an approximate analytical model for evaluating the performance of the switch under IID Bernoulli traffic for different offered traffic loads is developed. The switch throughput, mean cell delay, and cell loss probability are computed from the analytical model. With the switch being under heavy traffic loads, the accuracy of the analytical model is verified using simulation.
