Routing Table Manager (RTM)

Networking software Layer 3 IP Routing Routing Table Manager (RTM)

DC-RTM is a source code implementation of an IP Routing Table Manager for use with Metaswitch's IP Routing Protocol products. It combines routing information from multiple routing protocols (and optionally multiple instances of each protocol) to generate an integrated master routing table for IPv4 or IPv6 addresses, and populates the corresponding forwarding tables with active routes. It also exports external routes into the routing protocols, as required. This design provides a simple way to integrate different routing protocols, while maintaining a separate forwarding table for high-performance routing lookups.

Optical Transport Networks (OTN)

Networking software RSVP-TE (ReSerVation Protocol) IP Routing OTN (Optical Transport Network)

Operators of carrier and service provider networks are always under immense pressure to reduce operational and capital expenditures. As if that pressure weren't enough, they must also contend with preserving legacy technologies while addressing the continuous shift in traffic type (most notable: the shift from circuit to packet traffic). The ITU's Optical Transport Network (OTN) recommendation provides a network-wide framework that truly delivers on the carrier requirements for reduced costs, greater flexibility, and increased efficiencies.

What is Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM)?

Networking software Layer 3 IP Routing Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM)

Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) is a collection of multicast routing protocols, each optimized for a different environment. There are two main PIM protocols, PIM Sparse Mode and PIM Dense Mode. A third PIM protocol, Bi-directional PIM, is less widely used.

What is IP routing?

Networking software Layer 3 IP (Internet Protocol) IP Routing

IP Routing is an umbrella term for the set of protocols that determine the path that data follows in order to travel across multiple networks from its source to its destination. Data is routed from its source to its destination through a series of routers, and across multiple networks. The IP Routing protocols enable routers to build up a forwarding table that correlates final destinations with next hop addresses.

What is multicast IP routing?

Networking software Layer 3 IP Routing

Multicast IP Routing protocols are used to distribute data (for example, audio/video streaming broadcasts) to multiple recipients. Using multicast, a source can send a single copy of data to a single multicast address, which is then distributed to an entire group of recipients.
