Figure 1 shows a three-stage Clos network with a system of overflow links in the first stage of the network.
Figure 7 shows the dependence of the total blocking on the size of the reservation space introduced to the second and third class in the considered three-stage Clos network without overflow links.

The cache architecture based on three Clos networks can be divided into three categories: full-cache-type Clos network, non-cache-type Clos network, and part-cache-type Clos network.
Full-Cache-Type Clos Network (MMM, Memory-Memory-Memory).
Non-Cache-Type Clos Network (SSS, Space-Space-Space).
Part-Cache-Type Clos Network (MSM, Memory-Space-Memory).
Clos network has a good path diversity, but it may still occur in the internal block.
Our broad network of nonblocking Clos network routing algorithm provides a more efficient routing algorithm to improve the network performance.
Clos network has a good path diversity, which can provide multiple data link between each pair of nodes, so it has a good solution to the problem of network congestion.
