    New trends in communication, in particular the deployment of multicast and real-time audio/video streaming applications, are likely to increase the percentage of non-TCP traffic in the Internet. These applications rarely perform congestion control in a TCP-friendly manner; they do not share the available bandwidth fairly with applications built on TCP, such as Web browsers, FTP, or e-mail clients....

    In the last few years there has been considerable research toward extending the Internet architecture to provide quality of service guarantees for the emerging real-time multimedia applications. QoS provision is a rather controversial endeavour. At one end of the spectrum there were proposals for reservations and per-flow state in the routers. These models did not flourish due to the network's het... View full abstract»

    We describe a new active queue management scheme, random exponential marking (REM), that aims to achieve both high utilization and negligible loss and delay in a simple and scalable manner. The key idea is to decouple the congestion measure from the performance measure such as loss, queue length, or delay. While the congestion measure indicates excess demand for bandwidth and must track the number... View full abstract»

    We discuss the different issues to be considered when modeling the TCP protocol in a real environment. The discussion is based on measurements we made over the Internet. We show that the Internet is so heterogeneous that a simplistic assumption about TCP congestion control or the network may lead to erroneous results. We outline some of our results in this field, and we present a novel approach Fo... View full abstract»

  • Distributed control and resource marking using best-effort routers

    We present a method for creating differential QoS where control is in the hands of the end system or user, and the network distributes congestion feedback information to users via packet marking at resources. Current proposals for creating differential QoS in the Internet often rely on classifying packets into a number of classes with routers treating different classes appropriately. The router pl...

  • ABE: providing a low-delay service within best effort

    We propose alternative best effort (ABE), a novel service for IP networks, which idea of providing low-delay at the expense of maybe less throughput. The objective is to retain the simplicity of the original Internet single-class best-effort service while providing low-delay to interactive adaptive applications. With ABE, every best effort packet is marked as either green or blue. Green packets ar... View full abstract»
