One way, how to deal with the packet losses for video transmitted over congested network is using connection-oriented, end-to-end reliable protocol. In this paper, the authors focused on transmission control protocols, which fulfill the conditions for reliable delivery of information. TCP Tahoe and TCP Reno implementation supported by TCP are part of congestion avoidance mechanisms of the protocol suite. The main difference between them is mechanism of detection and reaction on the packet loss. Thus, they have tried to evaluate their performance using Opnet simulation software.
