Dynamic Network Traffic Rerouting

Device for and Method of Making Element Appear in Shortest Network Path by Minimal Decrements and Increments

This technology calculates a new shortest path in a network, allowing administrators to take advantage of underused links more effectively and reduce the network congestion experienced by users. In telecommunication networks, it is often desirable to change link weights to produce path changes in a certain desired fashion. As new services are added, certain sections of the network may become congested due to changes in the capacity of individual links. This technology enables administrators to reroute traffic efficiently in case a high-capacity link suddenly becomes available.
