Consider a single TCP connection using a 5 Mbps link which does not buffer any data. Suppose that this is the bottleneck link between the pair of hosts. Assume the TCP sender has a huge file to send to the receiver and the receiver’s receive buffer is much larger than the congestion window. We make the following simplifying assumptions:
→ Each TCP segment size is 1500 bytes
→ The RTT of the connection is 100 ms
→ The TCP connection is always in congestion avoidance (ignore slow start)
How long would it take for this TCP connection to reach its maximum window size again after recovering from a packet loss?
