Abstract: It has been proved by a lot of researchers that the present operation of TCP which is the main internet control protocol will suffer poor performance in future high speed networks. It has also been established that performance issues are very crucial in computer networks, for example when many computers are interconnected, complex interactions arise with unforeseen consequences. This complexity leads to degradation of performance if the system is not managed properly. Yet research on congestion control focuses almost entirely on maximizing link throughput, utilization and fairness, which matter more to the operator than the user. To arrest the situation, various factors which affect network performance were examined. Characteristics of congestion Control Protocols were described. Congestion Control Protocols like Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and Explicit Congestion Protocol (XCP)were evaluated. The proposed congestion control protocol, Rate Congestion Protocol (RCP) was also evaluated. Then NS2 simulator was used under different scenarios to evaluate the performance of RCP and the aforementioned protocols to prove that RCP outperforms them in terms of expediting flows.
Keywords: Rate Control Protocol (RCP); Explicit Control Protocol (XCP); Processor Sharing (PS); Network Simulator 2(NS2); Transmission Control Protocol (TCP).
