Reviewer: Dynamic Behavior of Slowly-Responsive Congestion Control Algorithms

  1. This paper introduces new methods of TCP congestion control algorithms.
  2. The main contribution of this paper is analysing several algorithms under dynamic conditions. This contribution is important because increasing traffic on the Internet creates a need for better congestion control mechanisms.
  3. Despite some problems, slowly-responsive algorithms have some benefits to TCP congestion control.
  4. This paper presents a somewhat significant contribution because although TCP congestion control can be optimised, the authors actually find algorithms that could be safe to deploy.
