This chapter shows that fairness per flow may not be the best solution. Therefore, a new concept of fairness for Flow-Aware Networks is proposed. The concept is based on the assumption that similar end users get equal bandwidth in the outgoing link. In contrast to the original solution proposed for Flow-Aware Networks, where fair bandwidth is ensured for each flow, it implements the concept of equal bandwidth for the end users.
