Abstract

In this paper, we describe and analyze a joint scheduling, routing and congestion control mechanism for wireless networks, that asymptotically guarantees stability of the buffers and fair allocation of the network resources. The queue-lengths serve as common information to different layers of the network protocol stack. Our main contribution is to prove the asymptotic optimality of a primal-dual congestion controller, which is known to model different versions of transmission control protocol well.
