Adaptive routing in active networks

By Giuseppe Di Fatta, Salvatore Gaglio, Giuseppe Lo Re and Marco Ortolani


New conceptual ideas on network architectures have been proposed in the recent past. Current store-andforward\ud routers are replaced by active intermediate systems,\ud which are able to perform computations on transient packets,\ud in a way that results very helpful for developing and\ud deploying new protocols in a short time. This paper introduces a new routing algorithm, based on a congestion\ud metric, and inspired by the behavior of ants in nature. The\ud use of the Active Networks paradigm associated with a cooperative learning environment produces a robust, decentralized algorithm capable of adapting quickly to changing conditions
