In this paper, we present an experimental transport pro- tocol which employs alternative methods of startup and congestion avoidance to those commonly used in imple- mentations of TCP. Through modelling and simulation, we demonstrate how a packet-pair probe may be used to re- place traditional slow-start methods and how pro-active congestion avoidance algorithms provide smoother traffic flow with lower levels of packet loss and retransmission. We also show how a token bucket may be used to allow bounded burstiness for an Internet connection in order to facilitate an application's Quality of Service.
