Relationship to Current Internet Protocols
Consider a single source accessing a link which has the capacity to serve c packets-per-second. Let us also suppose for simplicity that all packets are of equal size. To ensure that congestion does not occur at the link, the source should transmit at a maximum rate of c. One way to ensure this is using a window flow control protocol. A source’s window is the maximum number of unacknowledged packets that the source can inject into the network at any time.
