Traffic Engineering (TE) optimizes the performance of a network by analyzing and regulating the data transmission. Traffic Engineering with LInk Coloring (TELIC) was proposed to automatically assign LSPs in multi-protocol label switching domain based on bandwidth and class of service attributes. TELIC dynamically assigns colors to links in the network domain on the basis of reservable bandwidth. Different classes of traffic are entitled for using different colored links. The main contribution of TELIC is segregation of premium and non-premium traffic results in predictable service for premium traffic.
