Recently, a negative interplay has been shown to arise when scheduling/AQM techniques and low-priority congestion control protocols are used together: namely, AQM resets the relative level of priority among congestion control protocols. This work explores this issue by (i) studying a fluid model that describes system dynamics of heterogeneous congestion control protocols competing on a bottleneck link governed by AQM and (ii) proposing a system level solution able to reinstate priorities among
