There are various factors essential for the design of queue management schemes for routers: queuing delay, link utilization, packet loss, energy consumption and the impact of router buffer size. Buffers present in routers are responsible for holding packets during network congestion to enhance link efficiency and reduce packet loss. Wireless networks are challenged with a wide number of issues in comparison to wired networks and thus, it is important to deal with problems like high network delays and channel under-utilization that occur in fixed sized buffers.
