Evolution of Congestion Control Mechanisms for TCP and Non TCP Protocols.

Dr. Atul M Gosai, Bhargavi H Goswami,Uditnarayan Kar.


Modern world of communication is demanding wired as well as wireless communication to provide faster data transmission that too in huge data amount. Now mobiles are no more just for calling. Each and every application of mobile is demanding Internet. This paper is written with the aim to study upon how the problem of congestion is taken care by the existing congestion control mechanisms. What are the options available in congestion control and what are their characteristics. This paper also explains the classification of congestion control schemes which came one after the other in the last decade. This paper briefly describes study on congestion control algorithms, its classification, its compatibility with TCP which is a most widely used protocol, few non TCP but popular congestion control algorithms.
