TCP Variant Simulation Performance in 5G mmWave Network

Syafrizal Mahendra, Doan Perdana and Arif Indra Irawan (Telkom University, Indonesia)

5G millimeter wave (mmWave) is a cellular network technology that has a high frequency. This results in a wavelength of this small technology so that it results in a coverage area that is not too broad. This allows handover events to appear more frequently than usual technology. As a result, users who move at high speed will have each different performance. TCP as a transfer protocol will be affected as a result of users moving with high speed and in this hanndover condition. To treat this, a TCP congestion control algorithm is used that can optimize TCP under these conditions. In this study an analysis of the performance of variant TCP variants with varying User Equipment (UE) speeds using Network Simulator-3 (ns-3).
