Abstract

Inter-domain Traffic Engineering (TE) is an important aspect of network operation both technically and economically. Outbound Traffic Engineering is less problematic as routers under the control of the network operator are responsible for the way traffic leaves the network. The inbound direction is considerably harder as the way traffic enters a network is based on routing decisions in other networks. There are very few mechanisms available today that facilitate inter-domain inbound traffic engineering, such as prefix deaggregation (i.e., advertise more specific prefixes), AS path prepending and systems based on BGP communities. These mechanisms have severe drawbacks such as exacerbating the increase of the size of global routing table or providing only coarse-grained control. In this chapter, an alternative mechanism is described and evaluated. The proposed solution does not increase the size of the global routing table, is easy to configure through a simple numeric value and provides a finer-grained control compared to currently used mechanisms that also do not add additional prefixes to the global routing table.

Item Type: Book Chapters
Additional Information: Book description: An ever-increasing thirst for information in recent years among consumers, researchers, and the general population has necessitated continuous growth of internet architecture and accessibility, an issue which, if not addressed properly, may inhibit the growth of the internet as a whole. Solutions for Sustaining Scalability in Internet Growth investigates current issues impeding the growth of information architecture and explores methods for developing a wider-reaching and ever-evolving internet. The book presents viable solutions to some of the current threats to robust and pervasive information systems, enabling internet actors such as network providers, service providers, vendors, and regulatory bodies to ensure the creation of a more accessible and balanced internet.
