It is reported that TCP does not perform well in high-speed wide area networks. Because MulTCP behaves like the aggregate of N TCP flows, MulTCP can be used to achieve throughputs of 1 Gbps or more. However, no performance evaluation of MulTCP in high-speed wide area networks has been published. Computer simulations are used to evaluate the performance of MulTCP. The results clarify that synchronized packet losses greatly impact the performance of MulTCP.
