Using ECN Marks to Improve TCP Performance over Lossy Links

Abstract

TCP was designed for wireline networks, where loss events are mostly caused by network congestion. The congestion control mechanism of current TCP uses loss events as the indicator of congestion, and reduces its congestion window size. However, when a lossy link is involved in a TCP connection, non-congestion random losses should also be considered. The… (More)
