This paper presents TCP rate control, a new technique for transparently augmenting end-to-end TCP performance by controlling the sending rate of a TCP source. The sending rate of a TCP source is determined by its window size, the round trip time and the rate of acknowledgments. TCP rate control affects these aspects by modifying the ack number and receiver(More)
Two important issues in TCP-based ow control are fairness and control of end-to-end delay. This paper examines diierent methods of controlling the rate and window of TCP to achieve these goals. The key idea is to use existing rate-control algorithms to calculate rate feedback and use new techniques to control TCP sources using the feedback calculated.(More)
