|A Consensus based Rate Control Scheme for ATM Networks
International Journal of Control, Automation, and Systems, vol. 10, no. 4, pp.817-823, 2012
Abstract : This paper is concerned with the design and validation of a consensus based rate control for the Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) networks. A sufficient condition for network closed loop stability in the presence of multiple bottleneck and heterogeneous sources with different time delays is given and it is used for switch-controller parameters design. The stability condition and the resulting congestion control performance in terms of robustness to network uncertainties, fairness, link utiliza-tion and packet loss are validated by discrete packet simulator. Moreover, it ensured convergence of the queue length to the desired consensus steady-state value with resulting network queue balancing.
