In previous work a DOCSIS model was added to 'ns' to allow simulations to be run to analyze the performance of DOCSIS. These simulations showed that congestion caused by the asymmetric data paths and the MAC contention process caused several performance problems. It was shown that ACK compression could cause a drop in downstream throughput of TCP streams. A… CONTINUE READING
