The main idea of IoT is to connect several objects to each other through Internet. In the field of Computer Network the main problem identified by researchers is network congestion. Now a day’s network congestion is increasing very rapidly because IoT connect a huge number of devices to internet. A transport layer protocol TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is accountable for network congestion control. The behavior of TCP is not stable as it takes long time to fill the available capacity of the network. It also continuously keeps assessing the capacity of data transmission through increasing the limits.TCP drops its data transmission rate aggressively when packets are dropped, which significantly reduces the throughput. This paper suggests a new approach, stable transmission control protocol for IoT applications. The experimental results show that stable transmission control protocol achieves better performance in terms of goodput.
