Title: Method, communication network and datacenter for traffic management in a communication network

Abstract: Method, communication network and datacenter for data traffic management in a communication network. The invention provides a method for data traffic management in a communication network. The method first includes setting up a first communication path for a first data communication and transmitting data from a source of the first data communication to a destination of the first data communication. Then, features of a saturation tree representing a congestion of data transmission in the first data communication are monitored and a data rate of the first data communication along the first communication path is adapted based on the monitored features. The present invention further provides a datacenter and a communication network.
