TCP is the most widely used protocol for Internet traffic, including email, web browsing, data and an increasing portion of multimedia content delivered in real time using the HTTP/TCP protocols. Performances of existing TCP congestion control algorithms degrade significantly when deployed over wireless networks. As TCP was designed primarily for reliable, as opposed to real time delivery, the problem is particularly severe for real time applications such as HTTP/TCP based streaming. In the proposed demo, the authors will demonstrate the performance of a new TCP congestion control algorithm in different network conditions.
