Emerging Topics in Congestion Control

This chapter discusses three different topics that are at the frontiers of research into congestion control: (1) We describe a project from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology called Remy that applies techniques from ML to congestion control. It discovers the optimal congestion control rules for a specific (but partially observed) state of the network by doing an extensive simulation-based optimization of network wide utility functions. (2) Software Defined Networks (SDNs) have been one of the most exciting developments in networking in recent years. Most of their applications have been in the area of algorithms and rules that are used to control the route that a packet takes through the network. ...
