The current paper presents the evaluation of new fair downstream bandwidth sharing strategy and effective shared link utilization for TCP/IP networks. The proposed method provides download bandwidth fair sharing among multiple data flows based on their upload per-flow rate limitation. We evaluate the current approach by controlling upload rate to obtain fair download bandwidth sharing for each of the flows in the link. The performance of the proposed method is evaluated on physical test network. The experimental results demonstrate that our approach can successfully provide fair bandwidth distribution among multiple data flows and can be promising method for bandwidth management in the real data networks.
