Unlike wired networks, random packet loss due to bit errors is not negligible in wireless networks. These networks have mobility as another challenge. This causes significant performance degradation of TCP. Different Variants of TCP exist; some have no mechanism to differentiate random losses on the wireless link from congestion and therefore treat all… CONTINUE READING
