Effects of congestion & various congestion control techniques


Hi Abrarad,

The speed of computers and telecommunications networks are extremely growing faster thus, causing high risks of network congestion.

The effects of network congestion can be experienced by users. Internet connection is unstable, slow download rate, and even loss of data would also occur, due to buffer overflow. Therefore, it would result in un productiveness and frustrations.

One cause of network congestion is, mismatch in speed between networks. For example, a typical user uses a slower Ethernet connection, while the data flowing from the servers are very fast. Congestion will occur between that two networks. Congestion can also occur within a network with multiple ports. For example, data should end into a single output port but arrive at multiple input ports.

Hope this helps.
