A new broadcasting method is presented for hypercubes with wormhole routing mechanism. The approach is based on determination of the set of nodes (called stations) in the hypercube such that for any node in the network there is a station at distance of at most 1. Once stations are identified, parallel disjoint paths are formed from the source to all stations. The broadcasting is accomplished first by sending the message to all stations which will in turn inform the rest of the nodes of the message. To establish node-disjoint paths between the source node and all stations, we introduce a new routing strategy. We prove that multicasting can be done in one routing step as long as the number of destination nodes are fewer than or equal to n in an n-dimensional hypercube. The number of broadcasting steps using our routing is equal to or smaller than that obtained in an earlier work.
