Keywords: Random Early Detection


Congestion lowers the network utilization, throughput which causes very large queuing delays, data loss and degrades quality of service. In this paper the technique Random Early Detection (RED) has been studied in more details and other queuing techniques have been derived in general in order to solve congestion problem in the computer networks. The simulation program has been built using C++ language to simulate Random Early Detection (RED) algorithm which gave a detailed result about the algorithm.
