Flow control methodology for virtual-circuit networks

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An input rate flow control methodology for a virtual-circuit computer network is presented. Power is used as the performance measure of a virtual circuit and network power, which is the product of all of the virtual circuit powers, is used as the network performance measure. It is shown that the network power has a unique maximum point in the feasible region of the throughput space. A distributed flow control algorithm is presented and proof of convergence is given. Several numerical examples illustrate the algorithm.
