Global Exponential Stability of FAST TCP with Heterogeneous Time-Varying Delays

Abstract

We address the stability property of the FAST TCP congestion control algorithm. Based on a continuous-time dynamic model of the FAST TCP network, we establish that FAST TCP in itself is globally exponentially stable without any specific conditions on the congestion control parameter or the update gain. Simulation results demonstrate the validity of the global exponential stability of FAST TCP. key words: internet congestion control, FAST TCP, nonlinear time delay systems, global exponential stability
