A meta-model for multiobjective routing in MPLS networks
MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) enables the utilisation of explicit routes and other advanced routing mechanisms in multiservice packet networks, capable of dealing with multiple and heterogeneous QoS (Quality of Service) parameters. Firstly the paper presents a discussion of conceptual and methodological issues raised by multiobjective routing optimisation models for MPLS networks. The major contribution is the proposal of a multiobjective routing optimisation framework for MPLS networks. The major features of this modelling framework are: the formulation of a three-level hierarchical routing optimisation problem including network and service performance objectives, the inclusion of fairness objectives in the different levels of optimisation and a two-level stochastic representation of the traffic in the network (traffic flow and packet stream levels). A variant of the general model for two classes of traffic flows, QoS traffic and Best Effort traffic, is also presented. Finally a stochastic teletraffic modelling approach, underlying the optimisation model, is fully described. Copyright Springer-Verlag 2008
