9.1 Overview

This chapter focuses on the design of the throughput control module of the NNRC framework. Initially the necessity of its presence is analyzed and its relationship to fairness in computer networks is clarified. Robustness against modeling imperfections, exogenous disturbances (UDP traffic) and delays (propagation ...
