Much of the traffic in existing packet networks is highly periodic, either because of periodic sources (e.g., real time speech or video, rate control) or because window flow control protocols have a periodic cycle equal to the connection roundtrip time (e.g., a network-bandwidth limited TCP bulk data transfer). Control theory suggests that this periodicity can resonate (i.e., have a strong, non-linear interaction) with deterministic estimation or control algorithms in network gateways.1 In this… CONTINUE READING
