Abstract

This study presents results from an experimental study of TCP source variants, Reno, Tahoe, Newreno, Sack, Fack and Vegas by monitoring the behavior of cwnd (Congestion Window) of each variant with using Long Term Evolution (LTE) network parameters such as, bandwidth, propagation delay and packet size. All simulations performed using NS-2 network simulator. In this study, simulation results showing the cwnd behavior TCP variants under different network conditions with a standard topology construct of six terminal nodes connected to main node through different bandwidths and different delays and this main node connected to other with constant bandwidth and delay. After getting the trace for each scenario we can analyze the behavior of six TCP variants with six different parameters. We chose LTE networks because it's provide a new specifications for a new radio-access technology geared to higher data rates, low latency and greater spectral efficiency and technology supporting flexible bandwidth deployments.
