TCP-Based Window-Size Delegation Method for TXOP Exchange in Wireless Local Area Networks

The authors propose a TCP window-size delegation method for downlink TXOP (transmission opportunity) Exchange in Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). In their method, the 'Compliant' STAtions (STAs) cooperatively use their available bandwidth in accordance with their throughput demand. They realize their method only with minimal modifications of the TCP functions of a proxy server, which lets one station (the TXOP provider) delegate TCP window size to another station (the TXOP client) so that the provider delegates its TXOPs in WLANs to the client.
