Packet reordering over TCP/IP networks is a phenomenon which is becoming increasingly important in network performance analysis. Reordering is a consequence of network equipment manufacturers increasing switch and link level parallelism on the Internet, seeking performance, reliability and economical improvements. This paper presents a methodology for(More)
The work presented in this paper is targeted at the first phase of the test and measurements product life cycle, namely standardisation. During this initial phase of any product, the emphasis is on the development of standards that support new technologies while leaving the scope of implementations as open as possible. To allow the engineer to freely create(More)
TCP’s downlink performance during FMIPv6enabled IEEE802.11g handoff is examined. The use of a userinitiated Handoff Notification, sent prior to handoff, is proposed. Therefore, the correspondent node is aware of the handoffinduced disruption, hence avoiding dropping the congestion window size and triggering Fast Retransmission mechanisms. During handoff, it(More)
