In other words, it is not practical to assume that instantaneous resource availability will be known at all remote points in the global internet. In other words, intermediate nodes should be able to preclude the use of a route by expressing a transit policy, but if a route is not precluded (i.e., is legal according to all ADs in the route), the route should be made available to the source independent of an intermediate domain’s preferences for how its own traffic flows. The efficiency of the NR component improves when a number of source domains share a particular route from some intermediate point to a destination. That is, the efficiency of the NR component improves when a number of source domains share a particular route from some intermediate point to a destination. Source routing is subject to different constraints. IDRP is an OSI inter-domain routing protocol that is being progressed toward standardization within ISO. Footnote: BGP is an inter-autonomous system routing protocol for TCP/IP internets. As indicated above, support for heterogeneous route selection policies, in view of its computational and storage complexity, is impractical with LS hop-by-hop routing.
Specifically, these policies can not be modified, automatically, in response to information about other domains’ transit policies, or routes selected by local or other domains. Similarly, transit policies can not be automatically modified in response to information about performance characteristics of either local or external domains. Participation as a transit routing domain requires that the domain can distribute local configuration information (LCI) and that some of its routers implement the route installation and route management protocols. Moreover, advertising a transit policy to domains that can not use this policy will increase the amount of routing information that must be stored, processed, and propagated. Moreover, the exchange of routing information necessary for the SDR component depends on facilities provided by the NR component; i.e., NR policies must allow SDR reachability information to travel. No, routing numbers are used for incoming transfers only, and cannot be used to extract money from your bank account. Route servers (RS) are the entities that compute source routes. As a result of the looser routing structure, SDR does not guarantee that a participating source routing domain will always have sufficient information to compute a route to a destination. All of our discussion of NR assumes hop-by-hop routing.

The proposed architecture assumes that most of the inter-domain conversations will be forwarded via routes computed and installed by the NR component.

For example, it is not clear how NR with LS could support something like ECMA-style policies that are based on hierarchical relations between domains, while support for such policies is straightforward with PV. Even if an initial implementation uses a simple global flood, we must study the problem of structuring connectivity information such that it can be retrieved or distributed in a more selective manner, while still allowing sources to discover desired routes. The routing algorithm employed by PV bears a certain resemblance to the traditional Bellman-Ford routing algorithm in the sense that each border router advertises the destinations it can reach to its neighboring BRs. In contrast, route selection with LS is decoupled from the distribution of routing information, and has no effect on such distribution. A collection and distribution mechanism must be put in place, even if it is centralized.
In addition, each intermediate transit domain must have the flexibility to apply its own selection criteria to the routes made available to it by its neighbors. Similarly, providing support for path-sensitive transit policies in LS implies exponential computation, while in PV such support has no impact on the complexity of route computation. Some of this traffic is delay sensitive, while some requires high throughput. It is unrealistic to assume that a single communication fabric will be deployed homogeneously across the internet (including all metropolitan, regional, and backbone networks) that will support all types of traffic uniformly. Rather, once a TOS route has been identified, an application requiring particular service guarantees will attempt to use the route (e.g., using an explicit setup message if so required by the underlying networks). In this context, it is the job of routing protocols to locate routes that can potentially support the particular TOS requested. While the NR component is optimized to satisfy the common case routing requirements for an extremely large population of users, this does not imply that routes produced by the NR component would not be used for different types of service (TOS). 2.5 Commonality between Routing Components While it is acceptable for the NR and SDR components to be dissimilar, we do recognize that such a solution is less desirable — all other things being equal.
