TCP is not suitable for real-time application in nature as it provides reliability over timeliness. The incoming data will first be hold in the TCP buffer and sent accordingly until acknowledgement received or timeout occurred, resulting in possibly the transmitted data being obsolete at the receiver. In this paper, a time-controlled window (TCW) algorithm is proposed to improve the real-time capability of TCP. Computer simulations using Network Simulator 2 (NS2) demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed algorithm.
