Abstract

See full text

An edge router which associates multiple virtual circuits (e.g., PVCs) with an internet protocol (IP) route. The data transfer load on the IP route is distributed on the virtual circuits. As a result, high aggregate effective bandwidth can be provided between edge routers, potentially without having to use a correspondingly high bandwidth physical connections.
