The bilayered ShuffleNet is a new logical configuration for multihop networks. This configuration uses the same logical configuration as the conventional ShuffleNet in terms of the number of users, number of columns and connectivity between columns: a doubling of connectivity is obtained by allowing each station in a column to be connected to a 'mirror' image of stations from the previous column. We compare the performance of the bilayered ShuffleNet with the SR_Net, a modified version of the conventional ShuffleNet, which can have the same connectivity and the same number of users as the bilayered ShuffleNet. These networks will be studied under deflection routing by applying the method of signal flow to path enumeration, and by a Markov chain model of the system.
