TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is the most widely used congestion control protocol in the today's Internet scenario. However, TCP has limitations such as not providing good bandwidth utilizations especially in high bandwidth-delay product networks, introducing high network load and excessive overhead over the network, whereas, RCP (Rate Control Protocol) is not flexible enough to co-exist with dynamic hybrid networking scenario where multiple protocols co-exist. RCP involves complex computations at routers and have risk of buffer overflow. In this paper, the authors have analyzed the performance of TCP, RCP+ and their proposed model RCP++.
