The one is to avoid analgorithm it employs. This paper presents a survey of occurrence of the network congestion, and to dissolve thevarious congestion control proposals that preserve the congestion. if the congestion occurrence cannot beoriginal host-to-host idea of TCP—namely, that neither avoided.

This flow control has several mechanisms. than when it works.First, the sender buffers all data before the transmission, Securityassigning a sequence number to each buffered byte. -Security and privacy issuesContinuous blocks of the buffered data are packetized into -Sender authenticationTCP packets that include a sequence number of the firstdata byte in the packet. Second, a portion (window) of the 2. Algorithmsprepared packets is transmitted to the receiver using the IP 2.1. Slow Start, Congestion Avoidance algorithms,protocol. As soon as the sender receives deliveryconfirmation for at least one data packet, it transmits a newportion of packets. Finally, the sender holds responsibilityfor a data block until the receiver explicitly confirmsdelivery of the block. As a result, the sender mayeventually decide that a particular unacknowledged datablock has been lost and start recovery procedures (e.g.,retransmit one or several packets). To acknowledge datadelivery, the receiver forms an ACK packet that carriesone sequence number and (optionally) several pairs ofsequence numbers. The former, a cumulative ACK,indicates that all data blocks having smaller sequencenumbers have already been delivered. The latter, a Fig: 2.1.slow start and congestion avoidanceselective ACK explicitly indicates the ranges of sequence Slow Start and Congestion Avoidance algorithms.numbers of delivered data packets.
