The method for scheduling interconnections in an interconnecting fabric comprises the following steps. In a determined time slot input selectors generate requests using a request pointer set, which is related to the determined time slot. Then, the requests are transmitted to output selectors, and the output selectors issue grants using a grant pointer set, which is also related to the determined time slot. In a further step the grants are transmitted to the input selectors, and the input selectors update the request pointer set. These steps are repeated, wherein for a further time slot a further request and grant pointer set are used, which are related to the further time slot.
