A Reliable TCP-Aware Link Layer Retransmission for Wireless Networks

Proc. ICCT 2000
Published Date:2000-08-01
In this paper, we develop a new TCP-aware link layer retransmission scheme that can offer almost full reliable transmission over wireless channels and efficiently avoid the adverse interaction of different layer protocols. We introduce time-stamp in our scheme to offer reliable delivery for out-of-order segment and use explicit retransmission notification (ERN) to avoid false window deflating and multiple retransmission of TCP source. By simulation, we conclude that our proposal can greatly improve TCP performance over wireless networks.
