RINA, the Recursive InterNetwork Architecture, is a novel “back to basics” type approach to networking. The recursive nature of RINA calls for radically different approaches to how networking is performed. It shows great potential in many aspects, e.g. by simplifying management and providing better security. However, RINA has not been explored for congestion control yet. In this paper, we take first steps to investigate how congestion control can be performed in RINA, and demonstrate that it can be very efficient because it is applied close to where the problem happens, and through its recursive architecture, interesting effects can be achieved.

Abstract

RINA, the Recursive InterNetwork Architecture, is a novel “back to basics” type approach to networking. The recursive nature of RINA calls for radically different approaches to how networking is performed. It shows great potential in many aspects, e.g. by simplifying management and providing better security. However, RINA has not been explored for congestion control yet. In this paper, we take first steps to investigate how congestion control can be performed in RINA, and demonstrate that it can be very efficient because it is applied close to where the problem happens, and through its recursive architecture, interesting effects can be achieved. We also show how easily congestion control can be combined with routing, enabling a straightforward implementation of in-network resource pooling.
