This paper introduces a congestion management protocol for connectionless packet networks. Congestion in connectionless packet network environment is often related to the shared band- width within a cell boundary where bandwidth is shared between multiple users. By effectively capitalizing this information, the network can achieve throughput and higher level of user data security. Our proposal is based on the supposition that the protocols at the network (IP) layer and above will not be modified.
