Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Turing switch is a logical construction similar to the Turing machine. The Turing switch models the operation of a basic network switch in a network of switches, much the same as a Turing machine models the operation of a basic computational entity. Both are named in honor of the English logician Alan Turing. Some introductory research on the Turing switch was started at the University of Cambridge by Jon Crowcroft. In essence, Crowcroft suggests that instead of using general purpose computers to do packet switching, the required operations should be reduced to application specific logic and then that application specific logic should be implemented using optical components.
