Abstract: According to the features of multipath routing of MPLS and the shortcomings of existing load balancing algorithms, we build a distribution model and put forward a dynamic multi-objective and multipath load distribution mechanism to optimise network for the attributes of QoS including the load factor and the minimum hop. A better candidate path set is selected to replace a single best candidate path to transmit data by means of constructing probability coefficient and load proportion coefficient as routing standard. To get a more reasonable allocation of the network-source, the dynamic balance distribution algorithm is used to distribute the traffic. The simulations by MATLAB show that the improved algorithm can avoid network congestion effectively, and decrease the total delay obviously.

Keywords: dynamic balance distribution; MPLS; multipath routing; probability coefficient; load proportion coefficient; optimisation; simulation; network traffic; load balancing; network congestion; delay.
