The current best effort approach to quality of service in the Internet can no longer satisfy a diverse variety of customer service requirements, and that is why there is a need for alternative strategies. In order to solve this problem a number of service differentiation models have been proposed. Unfortunately, these schemes often fail to provide proper service differentiation during periods of congestion. To deal with the issue of congestion, we introduce a new load control mechanism that eliminates congestion based on the feedback from the network core by dynamically adjusting traffic load at the network boundary. We introduce four methods for calculating load distribution among the ingress routers and among different flows in each ingress router, and we evaluate these proposed methods through simulation.
