Congestion Control in Computer Networks

29 Nov
Wednesday, 11/29/2023 11:00am to 12:00pm
Computer Science Building, Room 150
Teaching Discussion

Abstract:  Congestion is one of the most important challenges in computer network communication. In this talk, we will learn what network congestion is, delve into its causes, and examine its impact on network performance. We will also discuss the principles of congestion control and how TCP congestion control works.
