Two Dimensional-IP Routing
Traditional IP networks use single-path routing, and make forwarding decisions based on destination address. Source address has always been ignored during routing. Lots of source address makes the traditional routing system inflexible and inefficient. The current network can not satisfy demands of both the network users and the ISP operators. Although many patch-like solutions have been proposed to bring the source address back to the routing system, the underlying problems of the traditional routing system cannot be solved thoroughly. In this paper, the authors propose Two Dimension-IP Routing (TwoDIP), which makes forwarding decisions, based on both source and destination addresses.
