Abstract

The data vortex photonic interconnection network is studied for application to clustering and hierarchical layering of nodes. Performance is examined for varying cluster counts and under loads of varying network locality. In today's technology, similar performance is attained at high network communication locality loads (>2/3), and a 19% latency reduction is obtained at the highest locality loads (>95%) for current optical switching technology. For projected future technology, the clustered system is shown to yield up to a 55% reduction in latency for applications with 2/3 or better locality.
