EF-AQM: Efficient and Fair Bandwidth Allocation AQM Scheme for Wireless Networks

By Rafe Alasem and Hussein Abu-Mansour


Heterogeneous Wireless Networks are considered nowadays as one of the potential areas in research and development. The traffic management schemes that have been used at the fusion points between the different wireless networks are classical and conventional. This paper is focused on developing a novel scheme to overcome the problem of traffic congestion in the fusion point router interconnected the heterogeneous wireless networks. The paper proposed an EF-AQM algorithm which provides an efficient and fair allocation of bandwidth among different established flows. Finally, the proposed scheme developed, tested and validated through a set of experiments to demonstrate the relative merits and capabilities of a proposed scheme
