This paper introduces a State Dependent Random Early Detection (SDRED) scheme that can improve delay and jitter performances by adjusting RED parameters such as maxth and wq according to queue status. The SDRED is designed to adapt to traffic conditions by adjusting the maximum threshold and queue weight to four different levels. From the simulation results, we show that the SDRED decreases queuing delay and has more stable jitter characteristics than the existing RED, BLUE, ARED and DSRED schemes.
