Receiving large number of data packets at different baud rates and different sizes at gateways in very high-speed network routers may lead to a congestion problem and force them to drop some packets. Several algorithms have been developed to control this problem. A random early detection (RED) algorithm is commonly used. In this work, we present an FPGA implementation of a modified version of RED able to run as fast as 10 Gbps. Furthermore, we discuss three enhancements of the RED algorithm leading a better performance suitable for FPGA implementation.
