Quality of Service support plays a major role in the Next Generation Internet. QoS routing protocols
must cope with service differentiation to enhance this support. This paper proposes a service aware
QoS routing protocol, the Multi-Service routing, which is an extension to traditional intra-domain
routing protocols. It proposes a new path selection policy that guides higher priority traffic through
the shortest path and diverts lower priority traffic through longer paths when service performance
degradation is foreseen. Simulations results shows that the proposed routing performs better than
existing QoS routing and linkstate protocols.
