This paper examines the efficiency of resource utilization with respect to short-lived TCP flows in various cellular networks. The examination is done from the vantage point of an end-user who would like to use as much as possible of the cellular transmission resources that are available at any given time, thus minimizing the delays associated with communication. Based on a comprehensive measurement campaign we first derive network characteristics with regards to base RTT, RTT under load, and… CONTINUE READING
