Active Queue Management (AQM) can potentially reduce packet loss rate in the internet. This is used by routers for control congestion, where packets are dropped before queues become full. It has been shown that the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) connections through the congested routers can be modeled as a feedback dynamic system. In this paper, a new framework of AQM, namely Variable Structure (VS) based control scheme to handle delays in active queue management algorithm supporting Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN), is proposed.
