In this paper, we describe active queue management (AQM) mechanisms that are employed in the Internet protocol (IP) routers. We address the functionality and implementation of AQM blocks in IP routers. We also describe the benefits of the AQM mechanisms and justify the need for their implementation. Simulation results illustrate the fairness and the efficient use of resources in networks with the AQM support.
