Multistage Interconnection Networks (MINs) are design to provide an effective communication in switching. MINs networks consist of stages that can route the switching through the path. In this types of network the major problem occur when the switch failed to route in the stage. If these situations occur the switching need to be route to an alternative path to avoid from system failure. Shuffle-exchange networks have been widely considered as practical interconnection systems due to their size
