Improving End-to-End Performance of TCP Using Link-Layer Retransmissions over Mobile Internetworks

Abstract

TCP does not perform well in networks with high packet error rates, such as those with wireless links, since TCP assumes network congestion to be the major cause for packet losses. Wireless losses make TCP unnecessarily initiate its congestion control mechanism which results in poor performance in the form of low throughput and high interactive delay. We… (More)
