The new challenges and schemes for the Smart Grid require high reliable transmission technologies to support various types of electrical services and applications. This paper concentrates the degree of importance of services and tries to allocate more important service to more reliable network routing path to deliver the key instructions in the Smart Grid communication networks. Pareto probability distribution is used to weight the reliability of IP-based router path. In order to definition the relationship of service and reliability of router path, the authors devise a mapping and optimal function is presented to access. An optimal method is used for adapting to find the appropriate value to match the objective function. Finally, they validate the proposed algorithms by experiments.
