Congestion control remains an important topic for today’s Internet protocols. Congestion is generally bad for net users, applications and network. Several mechanisms were proposed by researchers to improve congestion control. These mechanisms include TCP Tahoe, Reno, Vegas, SACK, and NewReno. In this paper, the current congestion control protocols are evaluated considering throughput, losses, delay, and fairness issues that provided by each mechanism. This study is done using the well known… CONTINUE READING
