Efficiency / Friendliness Tradeoffs in TCP

In this paper, we propose a refinement of TCP Westwood allowing the management of the Efficiency/Friendliness-toNewReno tradeoff. We show that the refined TCP Westwood is able to achieve higher efficiency yet at the same time maintain friendliness. TCP Westwood (TCPW) implements a novel window congestion control algorithm based on available bandwidth… CONTINUE READING
