Enhanced TCP Friendly Congestion Control Protocol

Jennifer Cecilia Rana A.
Abstract—This paper mainly aims in the improvement of the congestion control mechanism over mobile WiMAX in an adhoc environment. Here we compare the throughputs of three different TCP congestion control algorithms namely Westwood+, Veno and New Reno. This paper focused on the performance variation of three TCP congestion control algorithms caused by both handovers and random packet losses over mobile WiMAX. We have enhanced the protocol with Active Queue Management (AQM) and Random Early Detection (RED) mechanism of routing. Our ns-2 simulation results show that Enhanced Westwood+ using the handoveraware algorithm has the improved performance up to 10.2% over normal TCP Westwood+.

Index Terms—Mobile W-MAX, TCP congestion control protocols, handover.
