Providing efficient transport services over multi-hop ad hoc networks is a fundamental building block for this wireless technology. The typical approach is modifying TCP to fix one (or a few of) its inefficiency while preserving compatibility with the original protocol. However, a complete solution should include a significant number of modifications, such that the original TCP design is deeply modified. In this paper, the authors explore a different approach. They include the desired modifications to TCP in the design of a new transport protocol (TPA). In this way they are able to blend together these features in a unique design framework, and better control interactions among the different (modified) components.
