ATM Rate Based Congestion Control Using a Smith Predictor: An EPRCA Implementation
This paper presents a feedback control algorithm for ATM congestion control in which source rates are adjusted according to VC queue lengths at intermediate nodes along the path. The goal is to " ll in" the residual bandwidth, without exceeding a speci ed queue threshold. In order to obtain this, we propose a simple and classical proportional controller, plus a Smith Predictor to overcome instabilities due to large propagation delays, as well as to avoid cell loss. We propose an e ective EPRCA implementation in which each source computes its input rate based on the maximum VC queue length along the path. Theoretical and experimental results show that high throughput is achieved even with queue sizes independent of the round trip delay.
