In this study, we present a new approach for estimating the performance of the TCP network depending on a mathematical formula which converts the conceptual performance parameter to a valuable one. With respect to TCP network performance, we consider the Random Early Detection (RED) and RED-Based algorithms where both RED and RED-Based follow the Active Queue Management (AQM) approach in TCP networks. Mainly, we make a comprehensive understanding of various network parameters that continually affect the network performance. The main parameters that are used given by: network throughput, link utilization, network average delay, and packet loss rate. Also in this study, we estimate a new parameter reflecting the network performance called Network Quality Parameter (NQP).
