Summary: 
Some researchers have started using the high-speed communication satellite WINDS to evaluate TCP congestion control methods. However, they do not aim to maximize TCP throughput when WINDS is paired with a Large Earth Station (LET). This paper evaluates the typical TCP performance of satellite links over a network composed of LET and WINDS in order to break the TCP throughput record for satellite links.
