A HighSpeed TCP Study : Characteristics and Deployment Issues

  title={A HighSpeed TCP Study : Characteristics and Deployment Issues},
  author={Evandro De Souza and Deb Agarwal},
The current congestion control mechanism used in TCP has difficulty reaching full utilization on high speed links, particularly on wide-area connections. For example, the packet drop rate needed to fill a Gigabit pipe using the present TCP protocol is below the currently achievable fiber optic error rates. HighSpeed TCP was recently proposed as a modification of TCP’s congestion control mechanism to allow it to achieve reasonable performance in high speed wide-area links.
