Performance Evaluation of MPTCP over a Shared Bottleneck Link

Soonghwan Ro, Dien Nguyen Van
Abstract—In this paper, we present experimental results evaluating the performance of the Multipath TCP over a shared bottleneck path in a series of benchmark tests. We found that the Multipath TCP’s fairness as well as its competitiveness responds to the change of network conditions, such as latency and loss rate. MPTCP is unfairness and powerful with regular TCP in ideal network conditions, but its throughput clearly decreases even less than regular TCP in worse network conditions with high latency and a higher rate of loss of packets.

Index Terms—Performance of multipath TCP, shared bottleneck, fairness.
