Abstract: Mobile Internet Protocol (Mobile-IP or MIP) provides hosts with the ability to change their point of attachment to the network without compromising their ability to communicate. However, when TCP Vegas is used over a MIP network, its performance degrades because it may respond to a handoff by invoking its congestion control algorithm. TCP Vegas is sensitive to the change of Round-Trip Time (RTT) and it may recognize the increased RTT as a result of network congestion. This is because TCP Vegas could not differentiate whether the increased RTT is due to route change or network congestion. This paper presents a new and improved version of conventional TCP Vegas, which we named as TCP I-Vegas (where “I”, stands for Improved). Vegas performs well when compared to Reno but when sharing bandwidth with Reno its performance degrades. I-Vegas has been designed keeping in mind that whenever TCP variants like Reno has to share the bandwidth with Vegas then instead of using Vegas, if we use I-Vegas then the loss which Vegas would have to bear will not be more. We compared the performance of I-Vegas with Vegas in MIP environment using Network Simulator (NS-2). Simulation results show that I-Vegas performs better than Vegas in terms of providing better throughput and congestion window behavior.
