ABSTRACT

 

TCP is the most used transport protocol in Internet. It has a data stream control based on TCP Window. This control implementation has several options and there are still different proposals to enhance it. When using TCP to transfer data the two most important factors are the TCP window size and the round trip latency. In this paper we will investigate the effect that the size of the flow control window has on the throughput of a TCP connection by using simulation parameters like-file size (bytes), inter request times (seconds), packet latency time (sec). Several simulations have been run with OPNET in order to acquire a better understanding of these parameters and the way they perform their functions.
