Towards Experimental Evaluation of Explicit Congestion Control
Source: Reed Elsevier
Innovative efforts to provide a clean-slate design of congestion control for future high-speed heterogeneous networks have recently led to the development of explicit congestion control. These methods rely on multi-byte router feedback and aim to contribute to the design of a more scalable Internet of tomorrow. However, experimental evaluation and deployment experience with these approaches is still limited to either low bandwidth networks or simple topologies. In addition, all existing implementations are exclusively applicable to either rate- or window-based protocols and are unable to study performance of different protocols on a common platform.
