Abstract
Abstract: Multipath TCP (MPTCP) brings promising features of throughput improvement and load balancing by utilizing the multiple available paths. However, adding a subflow without awareness of the network state will result in wasting network resources and degrading MPTCP performance. Finding and operating the proper number of subflows are necessary to achieve the best performance of MPTCP. However, an MPTCP host does not have knowledge about the number of available paths in the network, and it may create the ...
