Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is a reliable end-to-end protocol which is widely used in wired network. In the next generation heterogeneous network, the performance of TCP is not suitable. Since some new characters are in the new situation. Like long delay, high Bit Error Rate (BER), asymmetric channels, handover, dynamic network topology and so on. The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is originally first designed for low-speed and point to point wired networks and it is a connection oriented protocol. New complexities and issues were introduced to TCP, as soon as the internet is evolved. And Gigabit Ethernet and wireless mobile connectivity became the latest trend.
