Title: Routing of traffic in network through automatically generated and physically distinct communication paths

Abstract

The present disclosure pertains to systems and methods to identify high-priority traffic within a software defined network (“SDN”) and to route such traffic through physically distinct communication paths. Such routing may help to reduce network congestion faced by high-priority traffic and increase the reliability of transmission of such data. Certain embodiments may further be configured to generate a failover communication path that is physically distinct from a primary communication path. Still further, certain embodiments may be configured to suggest enhancements to a network that may improve a reliability criterion.
