Congestion Control for Ethernet Networks supporting ICN and 5G
Ethernet networks are typically best effort networks where traffic flows may contribute on creating network congestion and lead the switches to start dropping packets randomly. This results in unstable network latency that some applications cannot tolerate, especially in the context of 5G networks where delay constraints are very tight. The proposed research project aims at exploring and developing an innovative switch behavior for handling proactively traffic congestion in Ethernet network as a common Layer 2 infrastructure for the Core and Transport Network in C-RAN (Cloud Radio Access Network). The new knowledge, innovation and developed technologies will be integrated to Ericsson 5G scenario as a value added feature.
