The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) suffers from poor performance on high bandwidth delay product links meant for supporting data transmission rates of multi Gigabits per seconds (Gbps). During congestion, the TCP's congestion control algorithm reduces the congestion window cwnd to ? and enters additive increase mode, which proves to be slow in taking advantage of large amounts of available bandwidth. In this paper a refined new model, to overcome the drawbacks of the TCP protocol, has been presented.
