Performance Evaluation of Variants of TCP Based on Buffer Management over WiMAX

Currently, Worldwide interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) is one of the hottest technologies in wireless based on the IEEE 802.16 wireless technology which offers high throughput broadband connections over long distance that supports Point to Multi-Point (PMP) broadband wireless access. In this paper, the authors focuses on TCP sender side mechanisms and appropriate buffer management algorithm to handle higher offered load, random losses and retransmission timeouts in high delay networks in such a way as to keep congestion window as high as possible, while keeping the congestion under control and keep retransmissions to minimal.
