### Résumé:

We consider a stochastic model of a RED gateway under competing TCP-like
sources sharing the capacity. As the number of competing flows becomes
large, the queue behavior of RED can be described by a two-dimensional
recursion. We confirm the result by simulations
and discuss their implications for the network dimensioning problem.
