TCP Performance – CUBIC, Vegas & Reno
Keywords:TCP, Congestion Control, Reno, CUBIC, Vegas
At present there are different TCP versions providing different performances. In this work the three of them: Reno, CUBIC and Vegas are considered. We simulate a WAN type network analyzing the throughput and performance of these TCP variants in order to discover which of them has a better performance.
