Multihoming is often used by large enterprises and stub ISPs to connect
to the Internet. In this paper, we design a series of novel smart
routing algorithms to optimize cost and performance for multihomed
users. We evaluate our algorithms through both analysis and extensive
simulations based on realistic charging models, traffic demands,
performance data, and network topologies. Our results suggest that
these algorithms are very effective in minimizing cost and at the
same time improving performance. We further examine the equilibrium
performance of smart routing in a global setting and show that a
smart routing user can improve its performance without adversely
affecting other users.
