The case for delay-based congestion control
We argue that, in the absence of explicit feedback, delay-based algorithms become the preferred approach for end-to-end congestion control as networks scale up in capacity. Their advantage is small at low speed but decisive at high speed. The distinction between packet-level and flow-level problems of the current TCP exposes the difficulty of loss-based algorithms at large congestion windows.
