A Compound TCP Approach for High-Speed and Long Distance Networks
—Many applications require fast data transfer over high speed and long distance networks. However, standard TCP fails to fully utilize the network capacity due to the limitation in its conservative congestion control (CC) algorithm. Some works have been proposed to improve the connection’s throughput by adopting more aggressive loss-based CC algorithms. These algorithms, although can effectively improve the link utilization, have the weakness of poor RTT fairness. Further, they may severely decrease the performance of regular TCP flows that traverse the same network path. On the other hand, pure delay-based approaches that improve the throughput in high-speed networks may not work well when the traffic is mixed with both delaybased and greedy loss-based flows. In this paper, we propose a novel Compound TCP (CTCP) approach, which is a synergy of delay-based and loss-based approach. Specifically, we add a scalable delay-based component into the standard TCP Reno congestion avoidance ...
