On the Impact of IEEE 802.16 Bandwidth Request-Grant Mechanisms on TCP

Abstract

In IEEE 802.16 networks, bandwidth allocation is centralized at the base station (BS). For the uplink traffic, data transmission is scheduled after the BS processes bandwidth requests (BW-REQs) sent by mobile stations (MSs). In this paper we focus on the multicast/broadcast polling method, where MSs send their BW-REQs during contention periods. Contention… (More)
