The idea for the new routing sytem wasn't Patterson's; it was mine.

I checked with different sources and still got confused about what a routing system is. It could be some stuff in a compuetr, or a thing for transporting goods or something. Can any advisor help?

I'm sorry, LC Chang. As you point out, a "routing system" could apply to a number of different things. The main point in this little bit of writing is that someone is trying to give credit for a good idea to the wrong person, but unless we know what industry they work in, we can't guess what they mean exactly.
Why don't you make a search at Yahoo with
routing wikipedia
to find a definition at Wikipedia, such as:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Routing
?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
I did. But it seemed a littile complicated.

Hi,

As you said originally, It could be some stuff in a computer, or a thing for transporting goods or something.

Basically, a routing system is a method of getting something from point A to point B. Is there something else you want to know about this?

Best wishes, Clive
In networking, a routing system switches packets of data on their path towards the destination. It's usually distributed, such as all over the Internet. Specialized computers doing just this job: routers.

Carrier Routing System- the one I found on Cisco's Website.

Hi,

As I said, it's a system for getting something from point A to point B. In computer terms, the something might be a data packet. In the real world, the something might be a truck.

Did you want to know something more specific?

Best wishes again, Clive
