Recent years have seen major efforts to converge existing circuit switch telephony and Internet services into one network, governed by the Internet Protocol suite. The rapid traffic increase in this consolidated network is accommodated by optical networking technologies. Quality of Service in such carrier grade networks has become a major concern. Flow-based networking can help to address these challenging issues since flows are the natural smallest unit where behavioural requirements can be applied. This paper outlines flow-based networking and introduces a method for flow-based overflow routing in an optical MPLS/GMPLS network.
