There is a rapidly growing need for making high capacity digital global networks resilient to variations in traffic load and network element failures. This can be accomplished by robust network engineering and greater network flexibility. The primary vehicles for achieving network flexibility objectives are dynamic routing and/or dynamic capacity allocation techniques. This paper presents an overview of the recent progress and new challenges in developing those advanced network control methodologies for global networks that exploit revolutionary new telecommunications technologies.
