In this paper, the authors propose a load balance approach by separating the host and router IP addresses into two spaces. In addition, in their approach, they propose a scheduling algorithm, named Edge Stream Balance (ESB), which is used by the proposed multipath routing scheme based on the address space separation. Each router can schedule each stream that is initiated by the connected host onto the proper path to the destination host by ESB dynamically. The multiple paths between any pair of hosts can be obtained by the connected routers by using the address separating mechanism. The merit of their approach is that: it balances the network traffic dynamically while being free of traffic demand assumption and offline flow optimization.
