The problem of congestion is not new to the field of telecommunications; its root can be traced back to the very foundations of the internet. Most, if not all networks, are currently faced with this problem. The distribution of resources on the network is very vital. The fact that resources are limited brought about major problem such that these limited resources would be shared among various workstations and nodes. As the network grows, and the number of workstations and nodes increases; resources become integral and if not properly managed no meaningful work will be done in such networks. Congestion control, which involved managing resources when the network utilization becomes so high, is of utmost importance so as to avoid congestion collapse. The complex calculations and computation carried out in the existing solutions, increase utilization as well as the problem of congestion. Traffic shaping algorithms provide solutions with little overhead and thus would be preferred to use in medium sized networks. This work proposes traffic shaping as a better solution for congestion control especially in medium size networks.
