Fair end-to-end window-based congestion control
In this paper, we demonstrate the existence of fair end-to-end window-based congestion control protocols for packet-switched networks with first come-first served routers. Our definition of fairnessExpand

A Distributed CSMA Algorithm for Throughput and Utility Maximization in Wireless Networks
In multihop wireless networks, designing distributed scheduling algorithms to achieve the maximal throughput is a challenging problem because of the complex interference constraints among differentExpand

Comparison of Multichannel MAC Protocols
This paper compares, through analysis and simulation, a number of multichannel MAC protocols. We first classify these protocols into four categories based on their principles of operation: dedicatedExpand

A quick simulation method for excessive backlogs in networks of queues
Excessive backlogs in stable open Jackson networks are studied. Although these events occur rarely, they can be critical, since they can impair the functioning of the network. The use of simulationExpand

Achieving 100% throughput in an input-queued switch
It is well known that head-of-line (HOL) blocking limits the throughput of an input-queued switch with FIFO queues. Under certain conditions, the throughput can be shown to be limited toExpand

Analysis and comparison of TCP Reno and Vegas
We propose some improvements of TCP Vegas and compare its performance characteristics with TCP Reno. We argue through analysis that TCP Vegas, with its better bandwidth estimation scheme, uses theExpand

McMAC: A Parallel Rendezvous Multi-Channel MAC Protocol
Many multiple channel MAC protocols for wireless networks have been proposed to make efficient use of multiple channels where each node has a single radio which allows it to send or receive on oneExpand

Optimal causal coding - decoding problems
The symbols produced by a finite Markov source are causally encoded so as to be transmitted through a noisy memoryless channel. The encoder is assumed to have channel feedback information and theExpand

Effective bandwidths for multiclass Markov fluids and other ATM sources
The authors show the existence of effective bandwidths for multiclass Markov fluids and other types of sources that are used to model ATM traffic. More precisely, it is shown that when such sourcesExpand
