Most packet switched multistage networks have been proposed to use a unique path between any source and destination. We propose to add a few extra stages to create multiple paths between any source and destination. Connection principles of such multipath networks for packet switching are presented. Performance of such networks is analyzed for possible use in multiprocessor systems or in data flow computers.
