Carrier Ethernet is becoming the dominating backhaul network due to its flexibility, scalability, interoperability and low-cost. Carrier Ethernet Networks (CENs) are inherently high Bandwidth-Delay Product (BDP) networks, hence Traditional TCP, and similar variants, make undesirable choices of transport protocol mainly because of the aggressive multiplicative-decrease algorithm. The Ethernet-Services Transport Protocol (ESTP) has proven relieve the effects of the decrease algorithm by dynamically adjusting the transmission rate according to the level of congestion estimated in the network.
