We describe a cross-layer study that attempts at profiling the performance of end-to-end congestion control protocols in high BDP wireless networks. Packets transmitted over such networks are assumed to face temporally correlated random bit errors caused by fading and/or blocking. We utilize a finite-state Markov chain to model bit error characteristics and apply per packet link layer FEC codes in order to compensate for such errors. Utilizing our model along with loss expressions, we profile… CONTINUE READING
