TCP Westwood: congestion window control using bandwidth estimation
We study the performance of TCP Westwood (TCPW), a new TCP protocol with a sender-side modification of the window congestion control scheme. TCP Westwood controls the window using end-to-end rateExpand

An Effective Broadcast Scheme for Alert Message Propagation in Vehicular Ad hoc Networks
In this paper, we focus on a vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) that makes use of 802.11-like wireless interfaces for Inter Vehicular Communication (IVC). We propose a distributed position-basedExpand
