Priority Based Bandwidth Allocation and Load Balancing
Frequent Route failures are common in a multipath IP (Internet Protocol) network. Backup configuration is one of the techniques used to re-establish alternate path. There is a need to focus on priority based routing and load balancing during congestion in multipath networks. In this paper, we are proposing a priority based bandwidth allocation and load balancing (PBALB) approach for multipath routing. In order to reduce packet drop and to enhance fairness, throughput and lower delay transmissions, Traffic shaping based on different type of traffic flows in Differential service domain is proposed. Simulation result shows that the proposed PBALB technique improves the throughput.
