Our interest in the paper is investigating whether it is feasible to make modifications to the TCP congestion control algorithm to achieve greater decoupling between the performance of TCP and the level of buffer provisioning in the network. In this paper we propose a new family of delay-based congestion control algorithms that we refer to as delay-based AIMD.
