On the propagation of congestion waves in the Internet


Traffic modeling of communication networks such as the Internet has become a very important field of research. A number of interesting phenomena are found in measurements and traffic simulations. One of them is the propagation of congestion waves opposite to the main packet flow direction. The purpose of this paper is to model and analyze packet congestion on a given route and to provide a possible explanation for this phenomenon. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved
