Due to the strong drive towards wireless Internet access through mobile terminals, it has become necessary to carefully handle the issues in the wireless environment such as frequent handover/handoff (user mobility), temporary disconnection, burst error and fading. These characteristics of wireless environment deteriorate the performance of wireless systems sharply in terms of TCP throughput as Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is basically designed for wired networks to provide reliable delivery by using congestion control and error control mechanisms.
