Thesis Title: Throughput Performance of Licklider Transmission Protocol (LTP)/UDP with Variation of Window Sizes” The main idea was to test the Interplanetary Overlay Network (ION) package in our laboratory under different conditions. ION is a software package of Space Internet Protocols developed by NASA to have secure and speedy transmission over space link with minimum data loss. Three transport layer protocols (TCP/IP, LTP and UDP), different delays and link breaks were used to test ION and this testing was done over the virtual test link connected with switches and routers. My role was to get maximum window size (Nominal Block Size * no. of sessions) which can be sent over a link. At end, results were sent to developer to improve the performance of the protocol.

Organizational roles:

  • Served as the Administrative Director of the Electronics and Communication Organization (ECO)
  • Part of the team that organized National Level Technical Symposium Purveyance 2007 and other events under ECO.
