Performance Evaluation of High Speed TCP Variants over Optical
Burst Switching Networks
Abstract: With the rapid development of Internet, people have strong interest in studying the performance of high speed TCP variants in optical burst switching networks. But they are only restricted in single high speed TCP’s performance research about the influence of the burst’s size, burst’s assembly time and wavelength numbers. This article systematically research many high speed TCP variants in optical burst switching through the simulation. We show that the high-speed TCP variants have better performance than regular TCP and the throughput has rapid increase when we increase burst’s size, assembly time and wavelength numbers of burst. When reaching at a value, we also find that the throughput decreases with increasing burst’s size and assembly time.
