A stable transfer over a network between a sender computer and a receiver computer is achieved by minimizing the feedback delay in the input signals because studies show that global stability is valid under the assumption of zero feedback delay. Future congestion in the network from the current delay measurement can be predicted and the processed signal fed back into the rate controller (RC) to achieve near-zero feedback delay condition. By optimizing data transfer between a sender computer and a device or receiver computer across a packet-switched network at a data rate, stability of the network and overall performance of the network is improved, and persistent queueing delay minimized.
