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
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 Notification (ECN).
- Modeling TCP/IP backbone traffic.
- Differentiated Services for the Internet.
- Audio and Video over IP.
- Control of Multicast flows.
- Mistral, Planete (INRIA Sophia Antipolis).
- Trec (ENS/INRIA Rocquencourt), Hipercom, Rap (INRIA Rocquencourt).
- Armor (IRISA).
- Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL).
- France Telecom R&D (Issy Les Moulineaux, Lannion, Sophia Antipolis).
