This paper analytically studies retransmission-based partially reliable transport service. Results show that partially reliable transport service provides increasingly higher throughput and lower delay than reliable transport service as an application's loss tolerance increases and as the underlying network service gets more lossy. Also, to some degree, partially reliable transport service eases the negative e ects of ack losses on throughput. Three cost functions associated with the… CONTINUE READING
