This paper proposes a quantum switching architecture that can dynamically permute each input quantum data to its destination port to avoid using the fully connected networks. In addition, in order to reduce the execution time of the quantum switching, an efficient quantum merge sorting (QMS) algorithm that provides a parallel quantum computation is also developed. The quantum switching utilizes the QMS algorithm as a subroutine so that the total running time can be reduced to polylogarithmic time. Furthermore, to evaluate the feasibility of the quantum switching, we also define three different kinds of performance factors that can be used to estimate the complexity in implementation and the time delay in execution for quantum instruments. From the evaluation results, it can be seen that the proposed quantum switching is feasible in practice.
