In this paper we present an effective load balancing algorithm for a multi-processor architecture designed for the real time switching of telephone calls. By modifying an algorithm developed for an abstract queueing model, which is of independent interest by itself, we propose a hybrid load balancing algorithm and study its performance in a simulation test-bed. This case study demonstrates how simple abstractions and theoretically intractable but intuitively appealing ideas can be combined to effectively solve a real problem.
