Modelling congestion control in the internet: the case of TCP
The Internet is a shared store-and-forward packet communication network. Being e resource sharing system, each connection is both flow controlled and congestion controlled. We show how this resource shared system can be modelled using simple integrators, gains and delays and how flow and congestion control can be modeled by using a Smith predictor and input shaping. Aldo an application to rate-based control is shown.
Tuesday 5th Oct. 14.00 – 16.00
QoS in IEEE 802.11
The Internet is evolving from being originally only a data delivery platform to one including the delivery of real-time audio and video. This shift poses a number of challenges. This talk will show how feedback control can be used at MAC link layer in wireless 802.11e to provide QoS.
