What is it about?

The article discusses a method to prevent overload in Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) networks, which can occur when the network is unable to handle the volume of traffic it receives. The proposed approach focuses on managing network resources at the transport layer to improve the efficiency of VoIP systems. By doing so, the method aims to reduce the impact of overload on the network's performance. This research is important because VoIP networks are widely used for communication, and preventing overload helps ensure smooth and reliable voice calls over the internet.
