Traditional connection oriented protocols like TCP NewReno perform poorly over wireless links. The problem lies in their design assumptions based on loss based congestion control. Various modifications to loss based congestion control schemes have so far been proposed to overcome the issue. In addition, the comparatively newer family of delay based congestion control mechanisms like Caia-Hamilton Delay (CHD), offer effective solutions for wireless link loss. All these approaches aim at improving the performance of the target connection without considering the overall network condition.
