We study TCP throughput and fairness over UBR for several buffer and maximum window sizes. TCP performs best when there is no loss. The performance is severely degraded under loss (regardless of UBR or ABR). Therefore, we study the switch buffer requirements for zero loss. The required buffers are found to be the function of number of VCs and their round-trip times.
