Currently, data communication during heavy traffic transmission on the network suffers from node failures. A failure in the network is required to be restored by the routing protocols in the networks. Traditional routing protocols schemes normally compute a routing table which contains all paths between all nodes on the network. Hence, the data packets will be passed via the single shortest path which is the best path between each source and destination. In this paper, a pre-computed alternate path is introduced to assist the congested networks to continue passing the data packets from its source to the final destination once failure occurs. The proposed alternative routing table (ART) algorithm aims to re-route the traffic through a backup route when the primary path has failed. We have evaluated the performance of the proposed scheme with OSPF routing protocol through NS2 simulator. The results show that packet losses, rerouting and end to end delay times of the proposed methods are substantially improved.
