Are you sure about that? 5ms is a pretty low latency circuit and if
you can't achieve significant throughput at that latency then I'd
start to suspect the infrastructure.

Having said that, this calculator does suggest that you should
expect around 204Mbit/sec as a maximum for a TCP stream at 5ms with
default Linux window size of 128kByte:


It suggests that you need a TCP window of 640kByte to achieve
1Gbit/s at that latency, so you might want to try playing with the
figures in:
