At this point in technology's evolution, the simplicity, elegance, extensibility, and broad compatibility of the Internet protocol suite has made it the automatic choice for most forms of communication. The attempts at resolution of this apparent dichotomy consist of a collection of technologies and philosophies known as Quality of Service. In an IP network, QoS defines the ability to compensate for traffic characteristics without compromising average throughput. Clearly, optimizing QoS performance for all traffic types on an IP network presents a daunting challenge. To partially address this challenge, several Internet Engineering Task Force groups have been working on standardized approaches for IP-based QoS technologies. The IETF’s approaches fall into four categories: prioritization using differentiated services, reservation using integrated services, label switching using multi-protocol label switching, bandwidth management using the subnet bandwidth manager. Differentiated services classify per-hop behaviors on the basis of a Diffserv code point attached to the type of service byte in each packet’s IP header. This DSCP approach represents a form of soft QoS that rather coarsely classifies services through packet marking. The differentiated QoS routing in GMPLS-based IP/WDM Networks are a promising candidate for the next generation optical Internet networks. By using a unified control plane, such networks make more efficient usage of network resources both at the IP layer and the WDM optical layer. In this paper, we consider prioritized routing of bandwidth-guaranteed Label Switched paths (LSPs) providing service differentiation between classes of high and normal priority traffic. The QoS delay requirements are assumed to be translated into bandwidth and O-E-O conversion requirements. We present a graphical representation of the integrated network state which is different from other conventional graphical representations in that it models the cost of usage of ports and o-e-o conventions in addition to the usage of wavelength and bandwidth resources. We then develop a threshold-protection-based routing algorithm which admits high-priority LSPs in preference over normal-priority LSPs and satisfies the bandwidth and o-e-o constraint requirements. Through extensive simulation experiments, we approve the service differentiation and effectiveness of our algorithm.
