End-to-end Fairness for TCP Traffic in 802.11e Wireless Mesh Networks Without Coordination

Abstract

We consider end-to-end per-station and per-flow fair bandwidth allocations for TCP traffic in 802.11 based multiradio multi-hop networks. We first show that TCP ACK packets have to be prioritised using IEEE 802.11e since otherwise congestion losses of ACK packets cause unpredictable performance. We then prove that prioritising ACK packets alone and ignoring… (More)
