The widely use transport protocol on the Internet is TCP/IP and its usage is mainly based on its high dynamic nature of adaptability to any kind of network capacity. The Internet technology today runs over large different link technologies with vastly different characteristics. In spite of the recent sudden increase in accessibility of broadband Internet access to improve the transport protocols communication, business organization, computer laboratory in learning environment, and public organization have fairly small-bandwidth links compare to the network environment that host the requested content. With the explosive growth of the Internet application traffics, the network traffic congestion grows and available limited resources becomes a bottleneck. The performance of the network eventually decline because of traffic congestion among other challenging issues, bringing the need for outstanding means of improving the TCP performance. Therefore, it becomes necessarily for any kind of network environment, to carry out a TCP performance analysis and identify the possible means of obtaining an optimal performance. This paper seeks to reflect the performance analysis of TCP in a network environment of multiple reliable connections with UDP traffic flows.
