This paper proposes an architecture capable of reducing network congestion caused by the intense use of non-cooperative traffic. A charging scheme is imposed to all traffic that is carried over the UDP protocol (non-cooperative) given its intrinsic priority over TCP. Prices are calculated according to the degree of starvation undergone by cooperative TCP… CONTINUE READING
