Automated Routing Control System supersedes the prior approach to LAN redundancy which provides two or more LANs and each has a network (LAN) controller coupled to data communication devices. Devices require some software to switch between the network (LAN) controllers to counter some network segment failures. This approach is proven to be very costly due to demands for off-the-shelf data communication devices with built-in LAN controller drivers [1]. Automated Routing Control System, is the ultimate solution to the growing demands for inexpensive (less costly) and less difficult approach which requires less modification rather than upgrade of network devices yet it minimizes data and information exchange losses and interruptions caused by connection failures within the network and lessens the task of managing a complex network having many segments rather than subnets under a centralized monitoring and management. Automated Routing Control System rather than mechanism is a realistic approach applied to meet the ever growing demands for reliability, high efficiency and availability within data and information exchange networks.
