Impact of drop synchronisation on TCP fairness in high bandwidth-delay product networks

By D. J. Leith and R. Shorten


Abstract — In this paper we consider the performance of several well known high speed protocols in environments where individual flows experience different probabilities of seeing a drop in drop-tail buffers. Our initial results suggest the properties of networks in which these protocols are deployed can be sensitive to changes in these probabilities. Our results also suggest that AQMprotocol co-design may be helpful in mitigating this sensitivity. I
