  journal={Wireless Networks},
TCP is a reliable transport protocol tuned to perform well in traditional networks where congestion is the primary cause of packet loss. However , networks with wireless links and mobile hosts incur significant losses due to biterrors and handof f. This environment violates many of the assumptions made by TCP , causing degraded end-toend performance. In this paper , we describe the additions and modifications to the standard Internet protocol stack (TCP/IP) to improve end-to-end reliable… CONTINUE READING
