Design and Analysis of a Flow Control Scheme Over Wireless Networks
Source: John Wiley & Sons
This paper studies the problem of congestion control on wireless networks. A dynamical model for the end-to-end network flow control is proposed, which exploits the differentiation between congestion loss and physical channel error loss. The introduction of a specific wireless model is motivated by the distinctive presence of channel errors, which are often not known exactly. The authors assume that each wireless link is associated with an additional error function that depends on the current flow along the link and which accounts for the packet loss rate caused by the physical channel.
