We derive a model of congestion control where the trade-off between utility and path diversity can be investigated. In a network where there can be multiple routes between locations, each source s is assigned a route according to an allocation scheme where the degree of randomness and therefore path diversity is controlled by hs, the entropy of the distribution defined by the allocation. Model equations are derived from a network utility maximization problem and the results of the analysis of… CONTINUE READING
