TCP NCE: A Unified Solution for Non-Congestion Events to Improve the Performance of TCP Over Wireless Networks
In this paper, the authors propose a unified solution called Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) for Non-Congestion Events (TCP NCE), to overcome the performance degradation of TCP due to non-congestion events over wireless networks. TCP NCE is capable to reduce the unnecessary reduction of congestion window size and retransmissions caused by non-congestion events such as random loss and packet reordering. TCP NCE consists of three schemes. Detection of Non-Congestion Events (NCE-Detection), Differentiation of Non-Congestion Events (NCE-Differentiation) and Reaction to Non-Congestion Events (NCE-Reaction).
