RED is considered more fair than tail drop. The more a host transmits, the more likely it is that its packets are dropped. Early detection helps avoid global synchronization.

Why is this true? Isn't the drop probability the same for all flows? --Nels Beckman 01:21, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

If host transmits more, then more packets from this host will exist in queue so probability is higher. -- 12:49, 11 May 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)
