Abstract

See full text

An apparatus includes an input part, a plurality of output parts, and a switching part. The input part inputs a packet and builds at least one forwarding data block including a predetermined destination identifier and packet data extracted from the inputted packet. The switching part includes a forwarding destination storing section for storing, in association with a predetermined destination identifier, a forwarding destination identifier identifying one of the plurality of output parts, and receives the at least one forwarding data block from the input part, and forwards it to one of the plurality of output parts on the basis of forwarding destination storing section which is updated in response to a change in the operating state of the plurality of output parts.
