Cross-Layer Analysis of Transport Control Protocols Over IEEE 802.11 Wireless Networks

In this paper, the authors provide cross-layer analysis of the impact of mobility and Medium Access Control (MAC) parameters in IEEE 802.11 wireless network on TCP. Performances of the Internet transport protocols may significantly degrade when end to end connection includes wireless links where packets delays and losses are caused by mobility and transmission errors. The authors perform analysis of the achievable throughput for different Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) versions, including TCP Tahoe, TCP Reno, TCP New Reno, TCP Vegas and TCP SACK, in IEEE 802.11 wireless networks.
