View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
Technologies for increasing the bandwidth of partitioned hierarchical networks is disclosed. If each partition of network groups of a computer network are isolated, then the connections between the network groups of different partitions may go unused. However, careful selection of the network connections between partitions of different network groups may allow for a pseudo-direct connection between two network groups of the same partition using a single non-blocking switch in a network group of a different partition. Such a configuration can increase the effective bandwidth available within a partition without affecting the bandwidth available in another partition.
