TCP(α,β) protocols trade the congestion window increase value α for the decrease ratio β , to generate smoother traffic patterns and to maintain a friendly behavior. In this paper, we study the design assumptions of TCP(α,β) protocols and discuss the impact of equationbased modulation of α and β on application efficiency. We confirm experimentally that, in general, smoothness and responsiveness constitute a tradeoff; however, we uncover undesirable dynamics of the protocols when the network ordoi:10.1109/iscc.2002.1021692 dblp:conf/iscc/ZhangT02 fatcat:oafvd22xabff3foqdvxqhzypue
