The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) has been mainly designed assuming a relatively reliable wireline network. It is known to perform poorly in the presence of wireless links because of its basic assumption that any loss of a data segment is due to congestion and consequently it invokes congestion control measures. However, on wireless access links, a(More)

— In [1], [2], we presented the design, specification and proof of correctness of a fully distributed location management scheme for PCS networks and argued that fully replicating location information is both appropriate and efficient for small PCS networks. In this paper, we analyze the performance of this scheme. Then, we extend the scheme in a(More)
—In this paper, we present an efficient fault-tolerant distributed location management protocol for personal communications service (PCS) networks. It achieves low connection-establishment delay, and under certain conditions, low overall cost compared to the current PCS location management protocol (i.e., IS-41). It also effectively avoids the shortcomings(More)
