Fair Bandwidth Sharing in Network Using FCFS-TP Protocol

Manvendra Singh, Bharat Singh, and Alok Misra

Abstract—In today’s scenarios Fair bandwidth Sharing in Distributed system are more complicated and difficult task, every user in network wants to maximize their bandwidth. As we know access to bandwidth is dependent on the Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol, Contention based MAC Protocols are not effective ones and do not results in fairness, also has less utilization of resources. Sharing resource in all users in fair manner is complicated task due to their differences in defining the fairness condition. Their criteria for defining the fairness condition can be based on time, packet, relative weight age etc., but satisfying all criteria is not possible. We have taken some basic criteria for sharing of resources. Hence we proposed FCFS-TP for accessing the medium. In this protocol we have taken time constrained over normal priority. We have analyzed that low priority user who wants to access the medium for less time may get higher priority over high priority user who wants to access the medium for long time.

Index Terms—Distributed network, fairbandwidth, medium access control, local area network.
