path diversity

Having multiple routes to reach a destination. The Internet is the world's largest example. It is a mesh network in which packets can take different routes depending on the current status of each backbone and router in the vicinity. See mesh network and wireless mesh network.

Some of NetCracker's newest enhancements include "domain routing," which permits the treatment of large networks as a set of smaller networks based on geographical or administrative boundaries, and constructs paths that adhere to those boundaries; circuit design improvements that enable users to compare the results of path-finding operations to a pre-built sample and flag discrepancies for review; enhanced support for path diversity including physical link diversity and location diversity; and configurability enhancements for protected path finding and multilayer path finding.
