Abstract

Demands on networking infrastructure are growing exponentially; the drivers are bandwidth hungry rich media applications, inter-data center communications, etc. In this context, it is important to optimally use the bandwidth in wired networks that extensively use LAG/ECMP techniques for bandwidth scaling. This draft explores some of the mechanisms useful for achieving this.
