Abstract

A Flow Transport and Delivery Network (FTDN) supports delivery and transport of flows to destination nodes over parallel overlay networks. Overlay nodes executing overlay processes create and maintain one or more overlay networks. A plurality of sites are connected to each other via the parallel overlay networks with each site comprising one or more transit routers that route the flows to the destination nodes.
