We propose a new scheme for multicasting in a binary tree that combines packet self-replication and routing in a space- division ATM switch. We revisit Law and Leon-Garcia's approach for packet self-replication and routing. Then we propose a new packet self-replication and routing scheme using only 2b address bits for a b-level binary tree. This method, when applied to a unique 3-dimensional ATM switch architecture, constitutes an optimum combination of packet self-replication and routing for multicasting in a continuously expanding self- routing space-division switch.
