Currently, most data applications on wire line networks use TCP/IP as an end-to-end flow and congestion avoidance protocol. TCP provides excellent performance for data transfer in networks with stationary users when congestion is mainly due to packet loss and unusual long delays. For wireless or wire line networks, standard TCP responds to congestion by dropping transmission window size to a minimum, and exponentially backing off its retransmission timer.
