    This report deals with the analysis of the performance of the widely spread Transport Control Protocol over 3G UMTS networks based upon data provided by simulations executed on Network Simulator Version 2. This paper starts with explaining and describing the underlying UMTS network in further detail. After describing the basic and common features of TCP, the behaviour of the most common and used TCP versions is then analysed, merely based on their theoretical implementations. These theoretical features are followed by an evaluation and more thorough study of their respective behaviours thanks to various simulations in several contexts.
