Reactive Transport Service
Study of the dynamics of transport layer protocols in the context of mobile wireless environment of an All-IP converged network, the characteristics of access networks and mobility patterns of Internet enabled devices, and development of heuristics for the design of algorithms capable of learning and reacting to the heterogeneous and dynamic nature of the network.
We identified shortcomings in existing TCP variants designed for high speed network and proposed a new high speed TCP, called SyncTCP, that addresses many of the shortcomings identified. Experimental evaluation was carried out on a 10 Gbps network comparing the performance of Cubic, CTCP and SyncTCP under different scenarios. Results show that our approach, SyncTCP performs better in most metrics over Cubic and CTCP. These findings can be applied to improve the performance of transport service, and to design an intelligent and adaptive transport layer protocol that would be required in the converged heterogeneous networks of the future.
