Abstract: XCP is a serious candidate to replace TCP congestion control in the internet. TCP, despite performing end-to-end congestion remarkably well degrades network performance due to unstable throughput, limited fairness and limited fairness. In XCP the routers provides the explicit feedback about the link capacity to the source. In time varying capacity media such as IEEE 802.11 knowing this value is difficult as it depends on many variables. We explore three algorithms for time varying capacity media which maintain efficiency under such conditions. Finally we compare our proposal with TCP new Reno and how such algorithm outperforms in terms of efficiency.
