"The OSU Scheme for Congestion Avoidance using Explicit Rate Indication," ATM Forum/94-0883, September 1994.

An explicit rate indication scheme for congestion avoidance in ATM networks is proposed. The sources monitor their load and provide the information periodically to the switches. The switches, in turn, compute the load level and ask the sources to adjust their rates up or down. The scheme achieves high link utilization, low delay, fair allocation of rates among contending sources, provides quick convergence and works for bursty traffic.
