Traditional hop-by-hop dynamic routing makes inefficient use of network resources as it forwards packets along already congested shortest paths while uncongested longer paths may be underutilized. To maintain network-wide load balancing, we propose Autonomous Network management with Team learning based Self-configuration (ANTS) which attempts to manage a feasible route for traffic flow with QoS constraints in heterogeneous networks. To enable cognitive intelligence for network-wide load

We present OPNET simulation results illustrating that, in comparison to original OSPF and AODV (2.18 Mbits/s with 46.46% packet loss rate), ANTS dramatically achieves a higher packet delivery (9.57 Mbits/s with 0.53% packet loss rate).
