routing

[′rüd·iŋ]
(communications)
The assignment of a path by which a message will travel to its destination.
(engineering)
A manufacturing process in which wooden parts are fabricated in various configurations; in high-speed industrial applications, an overhead cutting tool drills into the workpiece and then cuts the desired interior shape.
(graphic arts)
In letterpress printing, the removal of the nonprinting areas of a plate.

Routing

The cutting away of wood to shape a molding or other piece of millwork.

routing

(tool)
/row'ting/ Using a kind of rotating cutting tool called a router, pronounced /row't*/. In the USA a router, pronounced /row't*/, is also a network device that performs "routing". In the UK, the network device is pronounced /roo't*/ and what it does is spelled "routeing".

routing

Forwarding data to its destination. See router, intermediate node routing and DNS.

AODV routing algorithm is a source initiated, on demand driven, routing protocol.
On demand routing protocols are also termed as table driven routing protocols hence it find route to the destination when it is needed to reduce the control overhead.
(4) Since CRAHNs are dynamic in nature, there is a need for a mechanism that can exchange the exact information about the spectrum opportunities (SOPs) during routing.
In Mobile Ad Hoc Networks, because AODV use the simple flooding algorithm to broadcast the control packets in the routing discovery process, this makes a large number of redundant control packets in the network, so the routing overhead is larger, especially in the intensive network environments.
This figure depicts the routing overhead for all four algorithms.
The rest of the paper is organized as follows: Section 2 proposes an associativity-based on-demand multipath source routing protocol for mobile ad hoc networks.
Skills-based routing can dramatically improve service levels, agent productivity and overall contact center efficiency with no additional training or staff.
Although scrap recyclers may not need specific routing software, they can benefit from more comprehensive transportation management software, say some in the industry.
"Fanout is fanout and routing is routing, so don't mix the two!" To me this is utter nonsense.
More complex routing protocols are explained in subsequent chapters, including the Interior Gateway Routing Protocol, the Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol, Routing Information Protocol Version 2 and Open Shortest Path First.
Another step is to turn to the commercial market for newer, simpler routing software.
For instance, XOR (www.xor.com) is a provider of customized e-business solutions that is itself multi-homed via T-3 links to five different Tier One (national or global) backbones as well as InterNAPs routing service (discussed below), and offers its customers redundant connections in the data center.
