Dear colleagues,

BBR has rapidly become a major player in Internet congestion control.
BBR’s fairness or friendliness to other connections has recently come
under scrutiny as measurements from multiple research groups have shown
undesirable outcomes when BBR competes with traditional congestion
control algorithms (CCAs).

In this research Ranysha Ware, PhD student at Carnegie Mellon
University, developed a model capturing BBR’s behaviour in competition
with loss-based CCAs:

Kind regards,
