[en] We explain how the TOTEM toolbox can be used to engineer an operational network. TOTEM is an open source TOolbox for Traffic Engineering Methods which covers IP-based and MPLS-based intradomain traffic engineering (TE) algorithms, but also interdomain TE. In this paper, we use the toolbox as an off-line simulator to optimise the traffic of an operational network. To help an operator to choose between an IP-based or MPLS-based solution, or to find the best way to load-balance a network for a given traffic, our case study compares several IP and MPLS routing algorithms, evaluates the impact of hot-potato routing on the intradomain traffic matrix, and analyses the worst-case link failure. This study reveals the power of a toolbox that federates many traffic engineering algorithms.
