Rate-based feedback congestion control has been proposed as a form of traffic management for available bit rate traffic in ATM networks. This paper discusses applying linear control theory to these algorithms. A congestion control scheme for simple networks is designed and analyzed using the tools of classical control theory. This allow insight into the trade-offs in such schemes and suggests approaches to larger networks.
