Throughput of FAST TCP in Asymmetric Networks

Ge, Fei; Tan, Liansheng; Zukerman, Moshe


This letter proposes a model of FAST TCP that captures its dynamics in asymmetric networks. It is found that, as in symmetric networks FAST TCP can achieve stability but its throughput degrades as a function of a measure of the asymmetry that we call asymmetry factor. The theoretical results are validated by simulations.
