TCP Westwood (TCPW) is a sender-side modification of the TCP congestion window algorithm that improves upon the performance of TCP Reno in wired as well as wireless networks. The improvement is most significant in wireless networks with lossy links, since TCP Westwood relies on end-to-end bandwidth estimation to discriminate the cause of packet loss(More)
TCP Westwood (TCPW) is a sender-side modification of the TCP congestion window algorithm that improves upon the performance of TCP Reno in wired as well as wireless networks. The improvement is most significant in wireless networks with lossy links. In fact, TCPW performance is not very sensitive to random errors, while TCP Reno is equally sensitive to(More)
Classical control theory and Smith+s principle are proposed as key tools to design a congestion control law for high-speed data networks. Applications to Asynchronous Transfer Mode networks and to Internet Transmission Control Protocol are illustrated. Abstract High-speed communication networks are characterized by large bandwidth-delay products. This may(More)
– We study the performance of TCP Westwood (TCPW), a new TCP protocol with a sender-side modification of the window congestion control scheme. TCP Westwood controls the window using end-to-end rate estimation in a way which is totally transparent to routers and to the destination. Thus, it is compatible with any network and TCP implementation. The key(More)
is bounded uniformly. If the model basis is orthogonal, then the dimension of the model can be increased arbitrarily without affecting either the stability conditions i)–iv) or the state performance transient bound (the case k = 0), because (Rm) = 1. V. SUMMARY AND FURTHER RESEARCH We have given LQ-type performance bounds for a class of approximate(More)
TCP congestion control has been designed to ensure Internet stability along with fair and efficient allocation of the network bandwidth. During the last decade, many congestion control algorithms have been proposed to improve the classic Tahoe/Reno TCP congestion control. This paper aims at evaluating and comparing three control algorithms, which are(More)
Westwood+ TCP is a sender-side only modification of the classic Tahoe/Reno TCP that has been recently proposed to improve fairness and efficiency of TCP. The key idea of Westwood+ TCP is to perform an end-to-end estimate of the bandwidth available for a TCP connection by properly counting and filtering the stream of ACK packets. This estimate is used to(More)
This paper investigates "Quick UDP Internet Connections" (QUIC), which was proposed by Google in 2012 as a reliable protocol on top of UDP in order to reduce Web Page retrieval time. We first check, through experiments, if QUIC can be safely deployed in the Internet and then we evaluate the Web page load time in comparison with SPDY and HTTP. We have found(More)
— Modern production facilities (i.e., flexible manufacturing systems) exhibit a high degree of resource sharing, a situation in which deadlocks (circular waits) can arise. Using digraph theoretic concepts we derive necessary and sufficient conditions for a deadlock occurrence and rigorously characterize highly undesirable situations (second level(More)
The 802.11e working group has recently proposed innovative functionalities in order to support delay-sensitive multimedia applications, such as real-time voice and video, in Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). In particular, the 802.11e proposal introduces: (1) the Hybrid Coordination Function (HCF), which is an improved channel access method aimed at(More)
