Today, QoS is one of the most critical issues in the network research area and Differentiated Services (DiffServ) is considered as the most prominent solution to provide some kinds of service differentiation without introducing any scalability problem. Among DiffServ's approaches, Assured Service (AS) provides some minimal level of QoS guarantee by treating more preferably than traditional Best Effort (BE) traffic and by using different level of drop probabilities within the same AS classes. In this paper, we investigate the ECN's capability of improving overall goodput of the flows and the possibility of resolving the fairness problem among the flows belonging to same class in Differentiated Services architecture.
