This paper examines the attributes of TCP tunnels which are TCP circuits that carry IP packets and benefit from the congestion control mechanism of TCP/IP. The deployment of TCP tunnels reduces the many flows situation on the Internet to that of a few flows. TCP tunnels eliminate unnecessary packet loss in the core routers of the congested backbones which waste precious bandwidth leading to congestion collapse due to unresponsive UDP flows. We also highlight that the use of TCP tunnels can, in… Expand

Evaluation of UDP tunnel for data replication in data centers and cloud environment
TLDR
The authors demonstrate that UDP tunnel with an MTU size of 1150 bytes can be used as the mode of transfer for data centers, and addresses the reliability of UDP tunnel, while measuring the packet drops when sending different packet sizes. Expand
TCP-AFEC: An adaptive FEC code control for end-to-end bandwidth guarantee
TLDR
This paper proposes a new adaptive FEC scheme called TCP-AFEC that optimizes extra bandwidth usage for the redundancy level and shows that the proposed mechanism performs better than previous FEC control approaches in various network conditions. Expand

Congestion control in IP/TCP internetworks
TLDR
It is discovered that the Department of Defense's Internet Protocol (IP), a pure datagram protocol, and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), a transport layer protocol, are subject to unusual congestion problems caused by interactions between the transport and datagram layers. Expand
Promoting the use of end-to-end congestion control in the Internet
TLDR
It is argued that router mechanisms are needed to identify and restrict the bandwidth of selected high-bandwidth best-effort flows in times of congestion, and several general approaches are discussed for identifying those flows suitable for bandwidth regulation. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that the performance of TCP performance under many flows can be improved by applying back-pressure flow control to the aggregate traffic in the backbone and the combination of random early detection and explicit congestion notification routers with back- pressure has the potential to further improve TCP performance.

TCP trunking: design, implementation and performance
TLDR
TC trunking can be an effective tool for network operators in managing bandwidth sharing between aggregates and can guarantee minimum bandwidth while being able to grab additional bandwidth when it is available. Expand

This document defines TCP's four intertwined congestion control algorithms: slow start, congestion avoidance, fast retransmit, and fast recovery, as well as discussing various acknowledgment generation methods. Expand
Congestion control
TLDR
Congestion is an inherent problem for networks with multiple user access when the load exceeds what can be handled even with optimal routing, so window flow control and rate flow control schemes are discussed. Expand
Proportional differentiated services: delay differentiation and packet scheduling
TLDR
The proportional model is applied in the differentiation of queueing delays, and appropriate packet scheduling mechanisms are investigated, calling for scheduling mechanisms that can implement the PDD model, when it is feasible to do so. Expand
A case for relative differentiated services and the proportional differentiation model
TLDR
The proportional differentiation model aims to provide the network operator with the "tuning knobs" for adjusting the quality spacing between classes, independent of the class loads, which can lead to predictable and controllable class differentiation, which are two important features for any relative differentiation model.
