Numerous versions of the original TCP are implemented in order to avoid the undesirable behaviour within a network. Their main objectives are to provide a stable system operation, prevent appearance of congestion, and even collapse in extreme cases. The evolution of the physical media has brought up nearly error free transmission in wired networks. Nevertheless, this is not the whole picture, since even high performance wired environments have their own problems such as bursty transmissions, disproportion in performance between the end systems, gateways, and links, and heterogeneous infrastructure. The introduction of wireless settings makes the problem much harder due to the high BER, disconnections, and bandwidth limitations. The loss pair method has been successfully used for probing and determining the status of the network. In the focus of the article is its extension in the area of congestion detection, differentiation, and resolution. Hence, the loss pair method is being employed as a TCP mechanism for dealing with some congestion problems. The main advantage is the preservation of the TCP/IP modularity and the lack of infringement on the end-to-end semantics of TCP.
