—The common objective of network traffic engineering is to minimize the maximal link utilization in a network in order to accommodate more traffic and reduce the chance of congestion. Traditionally this is done by either optimizing OSPF link weights or using MPLS tunnels to direct traffic. However, they both have problems: OSPF weight optimization triggers(More)
As the network infrastructure has been consuming more and more power, various schemes have been proposed to improve the power efficiency of network devices. Many schemes put links to sleep when idle and wake them up when needed. A presumption in these schemes, though, is that router's line cards can be waken up very quickly. However, through systematic(More)
—False routing announcements are a serious security problem, which can lead to widespread service disruptions in the Internet. A number of detection systems have been proposed and implemented recently, however, it takes time to detect attacks, notify operators, and stop false announcements. Thus detection systems should be complemented by a mitigation(More)
