TCP-DR an effective protocol for infrastructure based wireless networks
Iqbal, Ahmed Ali, Mahmood, Waqar, & Ahmed, Ejaz (2005) TCP-DR an effective protocol for infrastructure based wireless networks. In Proceedings of the 2005 International Conference on Wireless Networks, ICWN '05, CSREA Press, Las Vegas, Navada.
TCP is a dominant protocol for consistent communication over the internet. It provides flow, congestion and error control mechanisms while using wired reliable networks. Its congestion control mechanism is not suitable for wireless links where data corruption and its lost rate are higher. The physical links are transparent from TCP that takes packet losses due to congestion only and initiates congestion handling mechanisms by reducing transmission speed. This results in wasting already limited available bandwidth on the wireless links. Therefore, there is no use to carry out research on increasing bandwidth of the wireless links until the available bandwidth is not optimally utilized. This paper proposed a hybrid scheme called TCP Detection and Recovery (TCP-DR) to distinguish congestion, corruption and mobility related losses and then instructs the data sending host to take appropriate action. Therefore, the link utilization is optimal while losses are either due to high bit error rate or mobility.
