	att_abstract={{Delay-insensitive applications such as P2P file sharing,
data center backups and software updates, generate substantial
amounts of traffic. This traffic, transported potentially
over multiple TCP connections, competes with traffic from other
possibly interactive applications. Today, with TCP, they compete
on an equal footing for each individual connection. In this
paper, we propose a new TCP variant for such delay-insensitive
applications, which we call Network Friendly TCP (NF-TCP).
NF-TCP is responsive to available bandwidth, seeking to quickly
and efficiently utilize available bandwidth in a congestion-free
situation, while backing-off more aggressively than standard TCP
when encountering competing traffic that results in even incipient
congestion. NF-TCP uses a novel combination of utilizing
measurement of available bandwidth and ECN-based congestion
avoidance techniques to ensure that it is truly friendly to existing
TCP connections. We evaluate the performance of NF-TCP
through ns-2 simulations and present initial results showing the
friendly nature of NF-TCP compared to standard TCP.}},
