Being both wireless and mobile, LEO satellite access networks have a unique set of link errors including bit corruption, handoff and limited connectivity. Unfortunately, most transport protocols are only designed to handle congestion–related errors common in wired networks. This inability to handle multiple kinds of errors results in severe degradation in effective throughput and energy saving, which are relevant metrics for a wireless and mobile environment. A recent study proposed a new… Expand

XSTP: eXtended Satellite Transport Protocol
TLDR
This thesis proposes grafting a new probing mechanism in STP to make it more responsive to the prevailing error conditions in the network, and shows that this mechanism helps STP yield higher levels of throughput, while maintaining lower levels of overhead. Expand
Satellite Transport Protocol (STP): An SSCOP-based Transport Protocol for Datagram Satellite Networks
TLDR
It is found that STP performs comparably to TCP-Sack in terms of forward throughput over simulated satellite channels, however, STP uses significantly less bandwidth on the return path, and is relatively insensitive to variations in round trip delay, making it an attractive candidate for asymmetric networks.

Open issues on TCP for mobile computing
TLDR
The design principles of TCP are discussed within the context of heterogeneous wired/wireless networks and mobile networking, and a solution-framework based on selected research proposals and the associated evaluation criteria for the suggested modifications are discussed. Expand
A comparison of mechanisms for improving TCP performance over wireless links
TLDR
The results show that a reliable link-layer protocol with some knowledge of TCP provides very good performance, and it is possible to achieve good performance without splitting the end-to-end connection at the base station. Expand

Wave & wait protocol (WWP): an energy-saving transport protocol for mobile IP-devices
TLDR
The protocol's central concern is to conserve battery-powered energy used for transmission, even at the expense of slower data throughput, by adjusting the amount of data transmitted to keep it below perceived network congestion. Expand
Energy/throughput tradeoffs of TCP error control strategies
TLDR
This work compares the energy- and throughput-efficiency of TCP error control strategies based on results gathered from the implementation of TCP Tahoe, Reno, and New Reno and shows that, depending on the frequency and duration of the error, each demonstrates appropriate behavior under specific circumstances, with Tahoe more-or-less the most energy conserving of the three.

Analysis of TCP performance over mobile ad hoc networks
TLDR
A new metric, expected throughput, is introduced for the comparison of throughput in multi-hop networks, and then used to show how the use of explicit link failure notification (ELFN) techniques can significantly improve TCP performance. Expand

TLDR
This work proposes "grafting" two components of strategic significance onto standard TCP: a probing mechanism and an immediate recovery strategy, and shows that these enhancements yield higher throughput while maintaining lower levels of energy expenditure, and thus have the potential of promoting TCP's congestion control to a universal error control schema for heterogeneous wired/wireless channels.
