In this paper, we propose a new variant of TCP with an early retransmission scheme as an enhancement to make it more suitable for streaming media. We call this new protocol TCP-ER. We performed extensive ns2 simulations to show that: 1) The early retransmission scheme can considerably reduce the number of retransmission timeouts and packet delay jitter in a variety of network environments. 2) TCP-ER has a higher throughput in severely congested network conditions whereas stays relatively fairdoi:10.1109/ictel.2010.5478842 dblp:conf/ict/YinAR10 fatcat:gosggg6hk5gafmpdjxfuphor7q
