To provide fault tolerance and improve system reliability and performance, a class of fault-tolerant multistage interconnection networks, called augmented shuffle-exchange networks (ASENs) has been proposed. ASENs are gracefully degradable; although an individual component failure reduces ASEN performance, it does not cause a total network failure. The purpose of this work is to analyze how the
