1. An intelligent routing and switching system comprising:

  • an interface for coupling said system to an external network;

    a switch fabric for selectively routing bits of data being exchanged with the external network through said interface and comprising an array of multiport switching elements each including switches and memory elements for introducing programmable delays in selected ones of the bits being routed;

    a first controller for implementing a routing table and scheduler in accordance with a sequencing graph to route bits of data through said switch fabric; and

    a second controller for generating the sequencing graph and for allocating input and output slots for inputting and outputting data through said interface.
