A Comparative Analysis of TCP/IP and ROACM Protocols- A Simulation Study


The purpose of this research is to introduce a new novel protocol, Route Once and Cross-connect Many (ROACM), and compare it against the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). The Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) is one of the interior routing protocols, which creates the routing tables for routers. These tables are adopted by TCP/IP protocol for forwarding packets. In this research, the routing protocol used to build the tables in routers is OSPF, but the comparison is between the TCP/IP and ROACM protocols. The variables selected for studying the efficiency of TCP/IP and developed protocol are average delay and throughput. The developed protocol outperforms in both the average delay and the throughput. Also, it was found out that developed protocol namely ROACM protocol is exponentially more efficient than TCP/IP.
