Part of the Modeling and Optimization in Science and Technologies book series (MOST, volume 3)


This chapter proposes a multipath routing approach that is adopted in content-aware networks, towards providing end-to-end Quality of Service (QoS) and an efficient exploitation/management of the resources. According to traffic identification mechanisms, this approach elaborates on effective packet distribution within several intra-domain paths. This is achieved through the capability of the edge nodes to recognize the content in a prototype network architecture. In addition, this chapter elaborates on content-awareness issues, regarding the utility estimation for a packet to select a particular path, based on different QoS-centric network criteria and requirements.
