Network Congestion Control, 4G Communication Networks


Wireless technology has continuously evolved adapting to the ever increasing demand of the users to access the internet. After 3G we now have 4G, which has evolved only because of the need for faster internet access, uninterrupted data services i.e. the need to always remain connected. 4G technology has many advantages ranging from high download and upload speeds, high data transmission rates, improved quality of transmission of data and voice. But the users and their demand is ever increasing and this ever increasing number of users is bound to create network traffic and congestion. Congestion is a phenomenon which occurs when the network demand increases its capacity. Congestion is an unavoidable phenomenon which degrades the transmission efficiency of the system and the overall quality of the system. Congestion can be greatly reduced if we apply efficient techniques and algorithms. This paper discusses the software based algorithms to monitor the network traffic and reduce congestion phenomenon.
