Universal Congestion Control is an algorithm for transmission speed
control. It is based on a simple and clean idea. Speed is varied in a
wave-like fashion. The top of the wave achieves near-optimal throughput,
while the bottom is low enough to let coexisting protocols like TCP
smoothly receive a fair share of bandwidth. The time lengths of the
peaks and troughs can be adjusted parametrically to achieve customized
levels of fairness between Rateless Internet and TCP.
Is it really possible to acheive TCP friendliness through such techniques ?
