This paper presents a general paradigm for the design of packet routing algorithms for xed-connection networks. Its basis is a randomized on-line algorithm for scheduling any set of N packets whose paths have congestion c on any bounded-degree leveled network with depth L in O(c+ L+ logN ) steps, using constant-size queues. In this paradigm, the design of a routing algorithm is broken into three parts: (1) showing that the underlying network can emulate a leveled network, (2) designing a path… CONTINUE READING
