Although loss rate, length of the queues in the routers and throughput are affected by self similar property of traffic, but classic congestion control algorithms work in short time scales and do not consider self similarity and long range (time) dependency phenomenon of data. To profit these properties, researchers have proposed several methods. Multi time scale congestion control is one of the successful ways to adapt with self similar traffic and predict network status. In this research, a three part structure has been implemented in which second and third parts take advantage of fuzzy engines. Results show throughput improvement in case of using fuzzy three time scale controller instead of a two time scale controller or a classic controller such as New Reno.
