Abstract: Current developments in technologies and markets stress the importance of exible and
robust performance optimisation and congestion control. In intelligent networks, conges-
tion control has traditionally taken a mainly technical view and focused on protecting
individual nodes from harmful overloads. We take a profit oriented, network wide view
and develop a congestion control mechanism to ensure profit maximisation under real
time performance. Numerical studies in a simulator show that the proposed mechanism
is robust and, in particular in overloaded states, provides a substantial improvement in
comparison to conventional load control mechanisms.
