An interconnection network architecture that promises to be an interesting option for future-generation parallel processing systems is the OTIS (Optical Transpose Interconnection System) optoelectronic architecture. Therefore, all performance improvement aspects of such a promising architecture need to be investigated; one of which is load balancing technique. This paper focuses on devising an efficient algorithm for load balancing on the promising OTIS-Hypercube interconnection networks. The proposed algorithm is called Clusters Dimension Exchange Method (CDEM). The analytical model and the experimental evaluation proved the excellence of OTIS-Hypercube compared to Hypercube in terms of various parameters, including execution time, load balancing accuracy, number of communication steps, and speed.
