Talk Title: The Packet-scale Paradigm: Congestion-control for Terabit Ne

tworks

Talk Abstract:
TCP congestion-control adopts a fairly slow-ba

ndwidth search process that prevents it from efficiently utilizing end-to-

end spare bandwidth in high-speed and dynamic environments. Unfortunately

, while several alternate congestion-control protocols have been proposed

to speed up the search process, most of these struggle to remain non-intr

usive to cross-traffic while achieving high speed---consequently, even th

ese "high-speed" protocols may still take hundreds to thousands of RTTs in
