    To alleviate the problem of high priority traffic hogging of all the available network capacity and to optimize the network traffic in the DiffServ network, we introduce the multi-class routing (MCR) scheme [3] into the DiffServ architecture. The MCR scheme that builds multiple routing tables in the DiffServ routers forms the MCR DiffServ architecture. In this paper, the MCR DiffServ architecture focuses on the intra-DS domain. Different MCR approaches that include a static approach and dynamic approaches can be used for the MCR DiffServ system. We extend the OSPF protocol in order to build up more than one routing table in each MCR DiffServ system. According to the extensions to OSPF, we have implemented the static MCR approach for the MCR DiffServ system on the basis of the open source Zebra software. © 2005 IEEE
