Traffic markers differentiate among packets from senders based on their service profile in the differentiated service networks. Researchers have previously revealed that the existing marking mechanism causes the unfairness in aggregates. This study presents a new marking algorithm. Simulation results demonstrate that the fairness of the proposed scheme exceeds that of SRTCM, TRTCM, TSWTCM and ITSWTCM for medium to high network provision levels.
