In this study we investigate the interaction between TCP and MAC layer in a wireless multi-hop network. This type of network has traditionally found applications in the military (automated battlefield), law enforcement (search and rescue) and disaster recovery (flood, earthquake), where there is no fixed wired infrastructure. Wireless "ad-hoc" multi-hop networks have previously been proposed for nomadic computing applications. Key requirements in all the above applications are reliable data… Expand
Impact of Multihop Wireless Channel on TCP-AP with LRED
TLDR
This work shows the performance of TCP with Adaptive Pacing (TCP-AP and Link Random Early Discard) as queuing model over multihop transmission than the single hop transmission when the source and destination nodes are in mobile nature. Expand
Impact of Multihop Wireless Channel on TCP-AP with LRED
The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) was designed to provide reliable end-to-end delivery of data over unreliable networks. In practice, most TCP deployments have been carefully designed in theExpand
On TCP Performance in Multihop Wireless Networks
This paper studies TCP performance over static, ad hoc networks that use IEEE 802.11 protocol as the access method. Our study reveals some interesting results. First, there exists an optimal valueExpand
TCP performance over mobile ad hoc networks
TLDR
The challenges imposed on the standard TCP in the wireless ad hoc network environment are first identified, then some existing solutions are discussed according to their design philosophy and some suggestions regarding future research issues are presented. Expand
Network coding for TCP throughput enhancement over a multi-hop wireless network
  • P. David, Anurag Kumar
  • Computer Science
  • 2008 3rd International Conference on Communication Systems Software and Middleware and Workshops (COMSWARE '08)
  • 2008
TLDR
This paper proposes a distributed modification of the IEEE 802.11 DCF, based on tuning the back-off mechanism using a feedback approach, and provides a theoretical analysis that yields a throughput bound with network coding. Expand
Cross-Layer Hop-by-Hop Congestion Control in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
TLDR
A cross-layer hop-by-hop congestion control scheme designed to improve TCP performance in multihop wireless networks and is interoperable with standard TCP and can be used transparently when using transport protocols that do not implement congestion control. Expand
On TCP throughput and window size in a multihop wireless network testbed
TLDR
Recommendations on configuring TCP and MAC parameters are given, which in many cases contradict previous proposals (which had themselves contradicted each other). Expand
The impact of multihop wireless channel on TCP performance
TLDR
This paper studies TCP performance in a stationary multihop wireless network using IEEE 802.11 for channel access control, and proposes link RED that fine-tunes the link-layer packet dropping probability to stabilize the TCP window size around W*. Expand
The impact of multihop wireless channel on TCP throughput and loss
TLDR
This paper studies TCP performance over multihop wireless networks that use the IEEE 802.11 protocol as the access method and proposes two techniques, link RED and adaptive pacing, through which it is able to improve TCP throughput by 5% to 30% in various simulated topologies. Expand
On the unfairness among TCP flows in IEEE 802.11 multi-hop ad-hoc networks
TLDR
This paper focuses on the impact of hidden node collisions on the performance of multi-hop TCP flows, and traces the source of the problem to collisions between RTS frames belonging to the starved flow and long data frames sent by the active flow. Expand

TCP and explicit congestion notification
TLDR
The first part proposes new guidelines for TCP's response to ECN mechanisms (e.g., Source Quench packets, ECN fields in packet headers) and uses simulations to explore the benefits and drawbacks of ECN in TCP/IP networks. Expand

TLDR
Analysis of packet traces suggests that aspects of TCP's algorithms contribute substantially to the total loss rate observed on the Internet, and a more fundamental cure might make TCP less aggressive and more adaptive when its congestion window is small. Expand
MACAW: a media access protocol for wireless LAN's
TLDR
This paper studies media access protocols for a single channel wireless LAN being developed at Xerox Corporation's Palo Alto Research Center and develops a new protocol, MACAW, which uses an RTS-CTS-DS-DATA-ACK message exchange and includes a significantly different backoff algorithm. Expand
The DARPA packet radio network protocols
TLDR
The algorithms are described and illustrated how the PRNET provides highly reliable network transport and datagram service, by dynamically determining optimal routes, effectively controlling congestion, and fairly allocating the channel in the face of changing link conditions, mobility, and varying traffic loads.

Floor acquisition multiple access (FAMA) for packet-radio networks

This analysis shows that using carrier sensing as an integral part of the floor acquisition strategy provides the benefits of MACA in the presence of hidden terminals, and can provide a throughput comparable to, or better than, that of non-persistent CSMA when no hidden terminals exist. Expand
