Visualization of QoS-Based Routing Algorithms via Java

The routing decisions in current Internet routing protocols are made without awareness of network resource availability and Quality-of-Service (QoS) requirements. This results in routes that cannot adequately support real-time applications involving audio and video traffic, although alternate routes with sufficient resources may actually be available. In this regard, QoS-based routing algorithms are desirable. The goals of QoS-based routing algorithms should be to compute routes that satisfy the QoS requirements as well as to improve the total network throughput (or in other words to optimize network resource usage). In the last few years, a few QoS-based routing algorithms have been proposed. We have created a Java-Applet to visualize some of these proposed algorithms, particularly: You must have a JAVA-capable browser to proceed. We first check your system:
