In this paper, we propose a method for the dynamic migration of the IP routing points using binary particle swarm optimization (PSO) in distributed Virtual LAN environments. Virtual LAN (VLAN) is a virtualization technique of datalink layer and can construct arbitrary logical networks on top of a physical network. However, VLAN often causes much redundant traffic due to mismatch between the topology of the logical network and that of the underlying physical network. We will show that the proposed method can adaptively select the routing points dynamically according to the observed traffic patterns and thus reduce the redundant traffic. Finally, we will evaluate the proposed method using the simulation environment.
