Models and Algorithms for TCP/IP networks
Today there is no doubt that the Internet has become a part
of everyday life for many people in the world. The recent success of the
Internet in comparison to other data networks, such as Frame Relay and ATM, can
be explained by the simple and robust structures of the basic Internet Protocol
(IP). The currently most popular Internet applications, Web and peer-to-peer,
are based on the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). Currently, between 80%
and 90% of Internet traffic is generated by TCP. The modeling and design of
TCP/IP networks is, therefore, an important research topic in the Networking
and Applied Probability scientific communities. The main aim of this ARC
project is to reinforce existing collaborations and to trigger new ones between
researchers working on TCP/IP modelling in INRIA, EPFL and France Telecom R&D.
Main research directions:
Asymptotics for AIMD and Multi-AIMD models
Modelling HTTP initiated traffic
Active Queue Management (AQM) and Explicit Congestion
Modeling TCP/IP backbone traffic
Differentiated Services for the Internet
Audio and Video over IP
Control of Multicast flows
