Abstract

When multiple congestion controlled flows traverse the same network path, their resulting rate is usually an outcome of their competition at the bottleneck. The WebRTC / RTCWeb suite of standards for inter-browser communication is required to allow prioritization. This is addressed by our previously presented mechanism for coupled congestion control, called the Flow State Exchange (FSE). Here, we present our first simulation results using two mechanisms that have been proposed for IETF standardization: Google Congestion Control (GCC) and Network-Assisted Dynamic Adaptation (NADA). These two mechanisms exhibit aspects that allow us to use a simpler “passive” algorithm in our FSE. Passive coupling allows a less time-constrained request-response style of signaling between congestion control mechanisms and the FSE, which enables the FSE to run as a stand-alone management tool.
