VA-TCP: a vertical handoff-aware TCP

  title={VA-TCP: a vertical handoff-aware TCP},
  author={Yu-Chieh Lin and Hsung-Pin Chang},
A vertical handoff occurs when a multi-homed mobile host roams from a network to another heterogeneous network. Nevertheless, the network before and after a vertical handoff usually have drastic different characteristics. In this paper, we proposed an end-to-end based Vertical-handoff Aware TCP, called VA-TCP, which promptly adapts TCP behavior during a vertical handoff. When entering a new network, on the basis of packet-pair algorithm, VA-TCP dynamically estimates the new network bandwidth… CONTINUE READING
