Reno Friendly TCP Westwood based on Router Buffer Estimation
— TCP Reno versions are widely used in current network, however it has been actualized that their throughput deteriorates in high-speed network and wireless environments. To overcome these problems of TCP Reno versions, a number of protocols have been proposed. In these researches, friendliness with TCP Reno becomes important. TCP Westwood is an example that is based on end-to-end bandwidth estimate, and brings higher efficiency performances. However it will be shown that the friendliness with TCP Reno is deteriorated according to network situations such as the buffer size of a bottleneck link router. In this paper, we quantify the buffer size that TCP Reno and TCP Westwood perform friendly to each other, and then propose an improved version of TCP Westwood that achieves friendliness with TCP Reno by estimating the buffer size of a bottleneck link router by using bandwidth estimation technique, RCE, and by updating congestion control parameters under the constraint of throughput esti...
