In this talk we consider the effect of physical scaling on network performance. By the "physical scaling" of a network we mean the reduction of its link speeds and buffer sizes by a factor p and applying a proportion p of the original traffic to this scaled version.

Our main finding is this: Physical scaling induces a performance scaling, in that queueing delays, drop probabilities, and the distribution of the number of concurrent connections are left virtually unchanged. We verify this through analysis and simulations.
