Abstract [en]

Performance of the TCP Congestion Control Algorithm has been the focus of research over the last decade. In this paper we propose modifications to TCP Congestion Control to improve its performance in wired-cum-wireless networks The key idea to determine the Optimal Congestion Window for a TCP Sender, in a particular network scenario (that corresponds to the fair share of that connection) and keep this congestion window a constant to a point where the fair share in the network has changed considerably from the instance of the calculation of the size of the last window. At this point, the TCP Congestion Window is recalculated according to the nature of new scenario. The proposed mechanism is particularly effective over wireless links, which have an inherently loss-prone nature, as Modified TCP's congestion window being independent of packet losses (be it corruption losses or it congestion losses), keeps transmitting at the same rate at before.
