The objective of this paper is to introduce theImproved-Ant Colony Optimization in VirtualCircuit Networks. We discuss AntNet, animproved version of Ant Colony applied as arouting protocol. A new model is proposed thatintroduces the application of Ant ColonyOptimization in the area of communicationnetwork. The proposed model is analyzed with theapplication of shortest path algorithm in VirtualPrivate Network. We also discuss the drawbacksof other optimization techniques that paved forthe use of Ant Colony Optimization as an efficientoptimization technique. In finding the optimalpath, the proposed model is found to performbetter than the OSPF.
