Internet Congestion Control (Paperback) (Subir Varma)
about this item
Internet Congestion Control provides insights into the latest and most critical developments in internet congestion control, emphasizing analytical modeling of congestion control systems. Using the lens of analytical modeling highlights the common threads that underlie the algorithms used in the design and analysis of congestion control protocols.
As the Internet grows in usage, its networks can become congested, deteriorating their quality and speed. To reduce congestion, there are hundreds of different algorithms network engineers can use andInternet Congestion Control sums these efforts drawing a clear path forward.
Internet Congestion Control begins with an analysis of models of congestion control systems, continuing with a detailed description of the congestion control protocols used in four distinct areas. It not only describes the protocols but analyzes the protocol’s mathematical models as well.
Internet Congestion Control provides practicing network engineers and researchers with comprehensive and accessible coverage of analytical models of TCP congestion control, giving readers everything needed to understand the latest developments and research in analytical modeling of network congestion control.
- Examines and synthesizes the most important developments in internet congestion control from the last 20 years.
- Provides detailed description on the congestion control protocols used in four key areas; broadband wireless networks, high speed networks with large latencies, video transmission networks, and data center networks.
- Offers accessible coverage of advanced topics such as Optimization and Control Theory as applied to congestion control systems.
