Chapter 5 Comparison between experimental and simulation results


In this chapter, we will compare the results we got from Random Dropper and from Network Simulator [2].

NS simulation script was written so that it mimics the experimental setup (same bit rate, same propaganda delay, same packet size and TCP version). Figure 5.1 shows that there is still significant difference between NS and experimental results. The Random Dropper has a much better performance than Network Simulator. Figure 5.2 shows the percentage.
