Investigation on TCP/IP Congestion Control in Optical Burst Switched (OBS) Network
Transport Control Protocol (TCP) is the dominant protocol in modern communication networks, in which the issues of reliability, flow, and congestion control must be handled efficiently. In this review paper an analytical switching is used to exploit the huge bandwidth of optical fibers for future high speed internet backbone. It carries multiple packets, in their turn. Different aggregation schemes have been considered and evaluated.TCP performance greatly depends on the TCP congestion window behavior that is related to loss events occurring in the optical burst switched network, there is a special term called traffic shaping by which the authors control over the network according to the network load.
