Methods to improve TCP throughput in wireless networks with high delay variability [3G network example]

Abstract

Highly variable round-trip times (RTTs) in wireless networks can induce spurious timeouts, thus unnecessarily degrading throughput for the transmission control protocol (TCP). In this paper, we propose and study two effective ways to improve TCP throughput in wireless networks. The first technique is to select a retransmission timeout (RTO) threshold higher… (More)
