Abstract

One of the main objectives of Active Queue Management (AQM) mechanisms is to provide low delay and low packet loss in best-effort service networks. Nevertheless, AQM algorithms exhibit some weaknesses in the process of congestion detection and congestion whenever we have a dynamic network topology. The paper proposes a new AQM algorithm termed as Adaptive AQM (AAQM) to attain both fairness and congestion control in heterogeneous networks. The performance of AAQM is compared to Blue, Drop-tail, RED and REM using both Reno and Vegas version of TCP. The results based on a large series of simulations with ns (network simulator) indicate that AAQM using Reno is more robust, which means that it is highly responsive to the time-varying state of the network.
