Whitepaper: Empirical Upper Bound on TCP Transmission Rate for Guaranteed Capture-Free Communications in Multi-Hop IEEE 802.11 Based Wireless Networks

by Universitat BaselJan 01, 2008

This research paper from Universitat Basel considers the well known problem of TCP capture in mobile ad hoc networks, which is an unfair distribution of network bandwidth between TCP flows. The conventional way of analysis of TCP performance in wireless networks is to consider multiple flows in a network with perfect connectivity. In the majority of existing approaches that target solution to the TCP capture problem the effect of long range interferences is neglected.
