MaxNet is a distributed congestion control architecture in which only the most severely bottlenecked link on the end-to-end path controls the source rate. This paper shows that the small-signal convergence speed of MaxNet is higher than that of conventional architectures, such as the current Internet or REM. It also shows that MaxNet decouples the control, so that each pole position depends only on parameters of one bottleneck link and of the sources controlled by that bottleneck, enabling optimal pole placement.
