The Internet is a set of interconnected packet switching networks each of them having its own protocol. It was soon recognized the importance of internetworking these different networks. To this purpose, a cross-network protocol called the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) was proposed ,,, . The Transmission Control Protocol implements a set of functionalities that enable the reliable internetworking of heterogeneous networks. One of these functionalities is the congestion control algorithm that has been introduced in 1988 by Van Jacobson after the network was suffering from congestion collapse . Since that time, the TCP congestion control algorithm has been of crucial importance and quite effective in preventing congestion collapse.
