This paper uses simulations to explore the benefits of different TCP variants. This model is an attempt at cross-comparing the different flavors of TCP under different network conditions. In this simulation we try to characterize different modes of the network by forcing different number of packets drops at an intermediate router, and under such conditions we attempt to study the performance of the TCP variants, namely Tahoe, Reno, Veno, Sack. The noteworthy aspects of the simulation would be how these variants would perform relative to each other under no congestion or low congestion conditions as well as how these performances would be increasing congestion. Simulation also takes into consideration the loss of packets due to quality of the wireless links.
