The overall performance of BISDN depends significantly on the interconnection network or the switch fabric. Hence, it is extremely important to evaluate the performance of the network or the fabric. The well developed performance models also provide insight into the factors that determine design tradeoffs as well as quantitative estimates of their importance. The objective of this paper is to investigate and critically compare all the developed performance analysis models of FPS according to internal switch fabric structure, traffic assumptions, performance measures, methodologies, etc. FPSs are described according to their internal fabric structure. Brief history of FPS performance analysis is mentioned and performance analysis modeling is discussed.
