  • Abstract:

    We describe an integrated model for TCP/IP protocols with multipath routing. The model combines a Network Utility Maximization for rate control, with a Markovian Traffic Equilibrium for routing. This yields a cross-layer design in which sources minimize the expected cost of sending flows, while routers distribute the incoming flow among the outgoing links according to a discrete choice model. We prove the existence of a unique equilibrium state, which is characterized as the solution of an unconstrained strictly convex program of low dimension. A distributed algorithm for solving this optimization problem is proposed, with a brief discussion of how it can be implemented by adapting current Internet protocols.
