An Approach for Per-Flow Bandwidth Distribution in Routers (BDR)



In this paper we propose Per-flow Bandwidth Distribution in Routers (BDR). This is an approach which enables an efficient use of the available bandwidth in high or low speed networks. BDR gives routers capacities to detect the number of active flows that are crossing the routers' output interface. This is done without needing to maintain any per-flow state information. In the paper we describe BDR and discuss its evaluation results based on ns-2 simulations. The results show that BDR has capacities to discover the number of active flows and has capacities to distribute the resources between all flows.
