Multi-Commodity Flow Traffic Engineering With Hybrid MPLS/OSPF Routing

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The common objective of network traffic engineering is to minimize the maximal link utilization in a network in order to accommodate more traffic and reduce the chance of congestion. Traditionally this is done by either optimizing OSPF link weights or using MPLS tunnels to direct traffic. However, they both have problems: OSPF weight optimization triggers network-wide convergence and significant traffic shift, while pure MPLS approach requires a full mesh of tunnels to be configured throughout the network.
