Introducing Multi-Plane Routing for Next-Generation All-IP Wireless Access Networks
It becomes more and more recognized that using IP as the underlying foundation for the next-generation of wireless networks makes strong economic sense. This is evident in installation and operation, and technical aspects as it takes advantage of the ubiquitous installed IP infrastructure. Because of that, a resilient, efficient and easy implementable routing paradigm is needed. Multi-Plane Routing (MPR) is a routing technique, using the recent multi-topology approach, that leverages multiple alternative paths (from each source-destination pair) through a network.
