MPLS (multi-protocol label switching) networks allow multiple LSPs (label-switched paths) be established from a source to a destination to satisfy throughput required by an application. Given a MPLS network, where each link is associated with a maximum available bandwidth, a fundamental traffic engineering problem is how we can find minimum number of paths to achieve the maximum throughput. Optimally solving this problem can save huge amount of valuable network resources including available… CONTINUE READING
