Introduction of modern and diverse applications in telecommunication field has raised challenges in networking area regarding efficient use of network resources and with optimizing performance. Therefore MPLS/GMPLS (Generalized multiprotocol label switching) networks were introduced to provide a better quality of service to meet users’ requirements as well as to optimize network resources. GMPLS networks use traffic engineering techniques for more efficient communication within the network and help to optimize network resources. This paper proposes BAT inspired metaheuristic algorithm for selecting an efficient route in MPLS/ GMPLS networks. In our investigation we considered routing costs as an objective function with goal to minimize it. The paper uses BAT algorithm with various levels of loudness parameter. The simulation results show performance improvements in MPLS/GMPLS networks of different size.
