Abstract
In wireless networks, it is important to ensure fairness among data flows in their access to network bandwidth. Providing end-to-end fairness in mobile networks is particularly challenging. This paper proposes a packet tagging and prioritized scheduling scheme that achieves fairness under network dynamics, without the need of maintaining any flow-level state in the network. The new scheme is a distributed solution that can work with any routing protocol. Numerical evaluation shows that the proposed scheme achieves far better global fairness.
