Abstract: The large demand for the wireless links and the mobility in the devices increase the need to utilize the bandwidth in the low bandwidth networks like satellite. The gaping method which propose in this paper is an effective approach to improving the performance of the TCP protocol in the wireless networks bandwidth at high delay networks in which the link is highly expensive. The new gaping technique had proposed sending data in TCP silence time by sending packets in the silence time, the new designed algorithm use leaky-bucket scheme for injecting packets in the time gaps through the stream of data in the network. The result had explaining and clarifying that, more data had went pass through the highly delay satellite link. The TCP gaping method could achieve the maximum throughput in interval of RTT and the TCP gaping will spreads data out successfully compared with standard TCP.
