In this paper we investigate the problem of sending data blocks containing finite number of packets over two independent routing paths in mesh networks. The objective is to minimize the average block delay by allocating packets into the two routing paths optimally. Previous researchers have shown that using more paths can reduce packet delay and the rate-based allocation policy is optimal, based on the delay metric solely depending on delay mean of each path. In our research, generalizing the… CONTINUE READING
