Glad this came up as I have been reading this paper -
Does Figure 1 in
seem reasonable ? Will 100 RED TCP flows really only fill 90% of a 155
Mbps pipe but 87% of a 2.4 Gbps connection
and 75% of a 4.8 Gbps connection ? This seems strangely non-linear to
A more fundamental question is, is this really useful except in the
case of very high bandwidth single flows (such as
e-VLBI or particle physics or uncompressed HDTV).
After all, isn't the current standard practice not to come close to
fully utilizing backbone bandwidth ?

Does anybody know any more about Fast TCP:
Is it real?
It it open source?
Are there any implementations available?
Here's the white paper detailing it:
Here is their home page:
It doesn't look like they have production code available at this point,
but it looks like it could be interesting.
