Identifying multiple optimal paths in Antnet Routing Algorithm with negligible Overhead

Vol. 9  No. 2  pp. 314-320


Antnet is an agent based routing algorithm based on real ants' behavior. Ants are able to find shortest path to food source .In real life, ants drop some kind of chemical substances to mark the path that they used. Then on their way back they choose the path with the highest pheromones which becomes the shortest path. But Antnet Algorithms may cause the network congestion and stagnation. Here, multiple optimal paths are proposed with negligible overhead in spite of single optimal path in Antnet routing algorithm, so that the problem of stagnation can be rectified.
