Executive Summary

The problem of fair distribution of available bandwidth among traffic flows or aggregates remains an essential issue in computer networks. This paper introduces a novel approach, called the Exact Bandwidth Distribution Scheme (X-BDS), for dynamic and fair distribution of available bandwidth among individual flows. In this approach, the edge routers keep per-flow information, while the core routers maintain the aggregate flow requirements. The XBDS approach employs a distributed message exchange protocol for providing network feedback and for distributing aggregate flow requirements among the nodes in the network.
