Flow control allows sources to adjust their bandwidth usage to the level of availability in a network, and hence reduces packet loss, increases network utilization, and prevents/reacts to network congestion. The Internet uses TCP flow control; asynchronous transfer mode networks will use rate based flow control. In this paper we present an optimization approach to rate based flow control. We describe an implementation of this flow control on an IP network, and we present some performance results of this implementation.
