Providing networks with QoS guarantees is one of the key issues to support current and future expected clients' demands. In this scenario, QoS routing is definitely critical as being responsible for defining those optimal routes supporting traffic forwarding throughout the whole network. This paper proposes two new QoS-aware RWA algorithms dealing with the routing inaccuracy problem, aiming at reducing blocking probability while limiting signaling overhead and balancing network load. The proposed algorithms extend the work already published by the authors on prediction based routing by adding a novel fuzzy-based technique featuring a powerful tool for modeling uncertainty. The proposed algorithms are compared with a well-known RWA algorithm and results show the benefit of introducing the fuzzy techniques in the RWA selection.
