Abstract

This paper proposes a Random early detection algorithm based on fuzzy logic Principles. The main target of using the fuzzy logic is to reduce the number of lost packets which are sent by a sender using RED algorithm in queue-buffer router of the network topology. The function of fuzzy logic is to dynamically tune the maximum drop probability (maxp) parameter of the RED algorithm. To realize this target, a two-input-single-output fuzzy logic is implemented. The inputs of the fuzzy logic are average queue size, the difference in average queue size. To estimate the performance of the FLRED: simple network topology with FTP is suggested. In this research, the opnet modeler 14. 5 has been used. The simulation results show that the FLRED algorithm is better than traditional RED algorithm as far as the number of lost packets is concerned.
