TCP demo applet

Logo for TCP demo applet
"The TCP demo-applet simulates a single directional unicast data transmission in a number of problematic scenarios. Although there are many factors that cause TCP todecease its transmission speed, I chose to focus on three problems: long delays, asymmetric networks, and errors. These problems are common on media that were not originally designed for interactive data communications such as satellites and cable-modems. A well planned 10/100 base Ethernet LAN should not experience any of these... More

A nice simulation for students to use to test transmission speeds, with the
introduction of errors on the communication line. Some background knowledge is
required in order to understand what is going on, but this would be a nice
add-on to a lecture on TCP.
Used in course

I don't understand this simulation.

Technical Remarks:

The picture shows no satellite or cable modem device. What am I looking at?
Changing the parameters affected nothing else in the simulation. Perhaps, it's
me. i just don't know how to use. it.

Applet is easy to use. Concept applies to higher level TCP/IP study. Not
applicable for intro courses. Good visual bandwidth representation.
