Active Queue Management (AQM) algorithms are an Implementing schemes, So that packets are transmitted with higher priority than others. Random Early Detection (RED) is the first active queue management algorithm proposed for deployment in TCP/IP networks. RED has some parameter tuning issues that need to be carefully addressed for it to give good performance under different network scenarios. Various algorithms come from RED such as Stabilized RED (SRED), Dynamic RED (DRED), Adaptive RED (ARED) and Flow RED (FRED) these algorithms control congestion by discarding packets with a load dependent probability whenever a queue in the network appear to be congested, this paper will introduced some features about RED and its variants.
