Robust controller design for AQM and H∞-performance analysis
Active Queue Management (AQM) has recently been proposed in  to support the end-to-end congestion control for TCP traffic regulation on the Internet. For the purpose of alleviating congestion for IP networks and providing some notion of quality of service (QoS), the AQM schemes are designed to improve the Internet applications. Earliest efforts on AQM (e.g. RED in ) are essentially heuristic without systematic analysis. The dynamic models of TCP ([9, 12]) make it possible to design AQM using feedback control theory. We refer to  for a general review of Internet congestion control.
