Cross-layer interaction between TCP and CSMA/CA-based MAC in multihop wireless networks produces suboptimal network performance, including flow rate unfairness and starvation. Rate control mechanisms can mitigate this behavior. Of particular interest are centralized mechanisms that enforce rate limits at traffic aggregation points, without modifying individual mesh routers or client devices. In this paper, we propose, design, and evaluate a framework of zero-overhead, feedback-driven… CONTINUE READING
