Abstract

An analysis of the sending rate of TCP control over Terabit per second rate links illustrates how future optical network characteristics, such as higher bitrates, network congestion, and larger data loads, would affect performance. We have implemented a model to allow increased sending rate for TCP. It is shown that even if the network bitrate is higher and the sending rate of TCP is scaled up, the throughput does not grow considerably, and latency remains one of the key parameters which must be reduced to improve performance.
