Title:         Flow Control From TCP to BBR

               At the heart of the Internet’s protocol is the TCP end-to-end 
               protocol engine. It is the role of this transport protocol to 
               take an underlying unreliable datagram service and transform 
               into a reliable streaming service. In additional, TCP has been 
               given the task to “share” a common network in some form of fair 
               fashion, yet still be able to maximise the efficient use of the 
               network. This aspect of TCP is termed “flow control"

               In this presentation we will describe the evolution of TCP flow 
               control protocols, looking at the challenges posed by changes in 
               the network, including large buffers, high speed and mobility. 
               We will also look in detail at the latest offering in the TCP 
               space, namely the BBR protocol, and look at how it works both in 
               theory and in practice

               Please note that this is a technical talk, at a minimum pre-reading 
               the wikipedia pages for TCP and Flow Control(data) is recommended.
