Abstract

This letter proposes a model of FAST TCP that captures its dynamics in asymmetric networks. It is found that, as in symmetric networks FAST TCP can achieve stability but its throughput degrades as a function of a measure of the asymmetry that we call asymmetry factor. The theoretical results are validated by simulations. © 2008 IEEE.
