New broadband access technologies such as Hybrid Fiber Coaxial (HFC) are likely to provide fast and cost e ective support to a variety of applications including Video on Demand (VoD), inter-active computer games, and internet-type applications such as Web browsing, ftp, email, and telephony. Since most of these applications, use TCP as the transport layer protocol, the key to their eÆciency largely depends on TCP protocol performance. We investigate the performance of TCP in terms of e ective… CONTINUE READING
