Abstract

This document describes the potential benefits to applications when
they enable Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN). It outlines the
principal gains in terms of increased throughput, reduced delay and
other benefits when ECN is used over network paths that include
equipment that supports ECN-marking. The focus of this document is
on usage of ECN, not its implementation in hosts, routers and other
network devices.
