A p network, which is a concatenation of 2 O networks , along with a simple control algorithm is proposed. This network is capable of performing all O network realizable permutations and the bit-permute-complement (BPC) class of permutations in 0(log N) time. The control algorithm is actually a multiple-pass control algorithm on the O network, which is more general than Pease's LU decomposition method  and Lenfant's decomposition method.
