Policy-Aware Connectionless Routing

  title={Policy-Aware Connectionless Routing},
  author={Bradley R. Smith and J. J. Garcia-Luna-Aceves},
The current Internet implements hop-by-hop packet forwarding based entirely on globally-unique identifiers specified in packet headers, and routing tables that identify destinations with globally unique identifiers and specify the next hops to such destinations. This model is very robust; however, it supports only a single forwarding class per destination. As a result, the Internet must rely on mechanisms working “on top” of IP to support quality-of-service (QoS) or traffic engineering (TE). We… CONTINUE READING
