TCP Westwood: analytic model and performance evaluation

  title={TCP Westwood: analytic model and performance evaluation},
  author={Andrea Zanella and Gregorio Procissi and Mario Gerla and M. Y. Sanadidi},
We present a performance model of TCP Westwood (TCPW), a new TCP protocol with a sender-side modification of the window congestion control scheme. TCP Westwood controls the window using end-to-end connection bandwidth share estimation. The key innovative idea is to continuously estimate, at the TCP sender, the packet rate of the connection by monitoring the ACK reception rate. The estimated connection rate is then used to compute congestion window and slow start threshold settings after a… CONTINUE READING
