Ant Colonies for Adaptive Routing in Packet-Switched Communications Networks

  title={Ant Colonies for Adaptive Routing in Packet-Switched Communications Networks},
  author={Gianni A. Di Caro and Marco Dorigo},
In this paper we present AntNet, a novel adaptive approach to routing tables learning in packet-switched communications networks. AntNet is inspired by the stigmergy model of communica tion observed in ant colonies. We present compelling evidence that AntNet, when measuring performance by standard measures such as network throughput and average packet delay, outperforms the current Internet routing algo rithm (OSPF), some old Internet routing algorithms (SPF and distributed adaptive Bellman… CONTINUE READING
