  journal={24th International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems, 2004. Proceedings.},
We address the interaction between TCP and RLC (Radio Link Control), the link layer retransmission protocol in W-CDMA, a 3rd generation cellular wireless network technology, in evaluating TCP performance in following points; l) Supress delay-jitter in link layer to avoid excess retransmissions. 2) Clarify the trade-off between jitter-suppression and link utilization to improve TCP throughput. 3) Optimize the link layer and TCP parameters. We show how to find the TCP and link ARQ parameters that… CONTINUE READING
