Allocating resources for multimedia traffic flows with real-time performance requirements is an important challenge for future packet networks. However, in large-scale networks, individually managing each traffic flow on each of its traversed routers has fundamental scalability limitations, in both the control plane’s requirements for signaling, state(More)
Provisioning multiple service classes with different performance characteristics (e.g., throughput and delay) is an important challenge for future packet networks. However, in large-scale networks, individually managing each traffic flow on each of its traversed routers has fundamental scalability limitations, in both the control plane’s requirements for(More)
Multipath routing enables a network’s traffic to be split among two or more possibly disjoint paths in order to reduce latency, improve throughput, and balance traffic loads. Yet, once the control plane establishes multiple routes, a policy is needed for efficiently splitting traffic among the selected paths. In this paper, we introduce Opportunistic(More)
This paper studies the effect of rerouting for augmenting aggregate based resource allocation in the trade-off between overhead and utilization. Aggregation is a common approach used to address the scalability issue in resource allocation. However, resources committed in bulk may be under utilized while other resource requests are being turned down for lack(More)
