Chee-Hock and Boon-Hee (Nanyang Technological U., Singapore) have written this textbook on queueing analysis for post-graduate students in network performance analysis, as well as existing network administrators in the field. Detailed derivations of network queueing results are used to show how flow and congestion control
This article concerns telecommunications traffic. For road traffic, see traffic congestion.

Congestion control concerns controlling traffic entry into a telecommunications network, so as to avoid congestive collapse by attempting to avoid
 are utilized for the application of data networks. A section is devoted to network calculus Network calculus is a theoretical framework for analysing performance guarantees in computer networks. As traffic flows through a network it is subject to constraints imposed by the system components, for example:
  • link capacity
  • traffic shapers (leaky buckets)
, so a strong background in mathematics may be helpful in digesting this information.
