Abstract

The traditional ant routing protocol provides an efficient way for dynamic routing in continuously changing networks. Due to their social behaviour, ants tend to find optimized paths based on network status information such as the path length and capacity. However, the conventional ant routing protocol tends to satisfy acceptable Quality of Service (QoS) requirements for the whole network traffic. The major problem is that different traffic types request different QoS requirements, and the traditional ant routing lacks the ability of providing different levels of QoS parameters for these different traffic types. In this paper, a novel technology is proposed to satisfy the requirements of different traffic types which vary in terms of bandwidth, latency and security. Oyster Optics Technology has been used to introduce the security as a new significant QoS factor.
