Abstract
We proposed a novel drop policy in the core nodes which is combined with the determinant strategy in the ingress edge nodes. The proposed drop policy is based on the field of Hop Number (HN) taken by the burst control packets, which is introduced to determine which burst should be dropped when the contention happened in the core nodes. In the drop policy, the long-hop traffic is given the high priority, and most of the retransmitted traffic is left to be short-hop traffic. Therefore, there is a trade-off between the short-hop traffic and the long-hop traffic. The determinant strategy in the edge nodes is an initialized threshold, Retransmission Number Threshold (RNT), which is introduced to determine whether to start a retransmission operation when NAK is received. The unnecessary retransmissions in the network are limited, and the burst loss rate is reduced. The mechanism also takes the upper layer, TCP layer, into account. When the network has already been in the state of real congestion, the retransmission will only deteriorate the network performance. In the case, the combined mechanism leaves the retransmission process to the TCP layer. It can improve the network performance cost-effectively.
