TCP is the most commonly used transport control protocol. However, its throughput and fairness performance degrades in WLANs due to the unfairness in 802.11 MAC protocol. Since more and more scientists at the EAST facility in China are relying on such set up to download and analyze their experimental data, their research productivity is severely hampered. In this paper, we propose to use a dynamical mechanism, called the AP-DDA, at the Access Point to tackle these problems. Our mechanism can… CONTINUE READING
