Many delay-based congestion protocols have been proposed. Some recent studies have questioned the validity of congestion prediction at end hosts Based on measurement studies. In this talk, we show that end-host based delay prediction can be more accurate than previously characterized. We propose PERT (Probabilistic Early Response TCP) to mitigate the uncertainties in end-host based congestion prediction. PERT emulates the behavior of AQM/ECN in the end hosts’ response to congestion.
In the second part of the talk, we discuss the issues in incremental deployment of PERT in the current Internet where loss-based TCP dominates. We modify PERT to be able to compete with TCP. In addition, we enhance PERT to exhibit better characteristics than TCP in high-speed high-delay networks. We will present results of evaluating PERT on real networks.
