Burst Error Analysis Introduced in Multiple Traffic of Protocols TCP Reno, Cubic, Westwood and Vegas on a Model of Hybrid Topology
Keywords:TCP, burst errors, NS-2
This paper explores the behavior shown by the protocols TCP Reno, Cubic, Vegas and Westwood in presence of errors in bursts occurred in multiple traffic over a hybrid topology. The development is based on the analysis of case studies, where it starts with a mixed topology of two wired and two wireless nodes, with two flows of the same variant of the TCP protocol, subsequently increasing the number of nodes until reaching 8 wired nodes behaving as senders and 8 wireless nodes as receivers. In all cases only one of these flows suffers a burst error and through the tests we analyze how the flow recovers from the burst. For this study, behavioral tests were carried out using the NS-2 network simulator, on a hybrid topology (wired and wireless), also incorporating burst errors of different lengths, typical of wireless links.
