This paper considers the problem of balancing traffic across network egresses. It achieves a workable solution using a scalable packet market scheme which couples end-hosts controlling their own connection with an overall controller which can select routes appropriately for each flow.

The flows are balanced to seek paths which minimise loss.

Criticisms of modelling packet traffic using long-range dependence

This paper looks at the phenomenon of long-range dependence. It shows that certain long-range dependent models give answers which contain infinities and also that this behaviour will not be detected by a naive modelling approach. The work is extended in the JCCS paper

Talk to Next Generation Networks meeting -- this talk is partly based on the ICC paper (fundamental relationships in TCP flows) and shows how TCP throughput arises from network parameters and engineering decisions.
