Whitepaper: Testing and Analyzing TCP Performance in a Wireless-Wired Mobile Ad Hoc Test Bed

by Thales CommunicationsJan 01, 2008

TCP is the mainly used connection-oriented transport protocol in the Internet nowadays. However, TCP has a number of problems when the connections are running over wireless links. This white paper addresses some of them for mobile ad hoc networking. The authors in this white paper make a real-life test bed for experimenting and analyzing TCP connections from a multi-homed ad hoc network into the global Internet. Through a set of experiments, it shows how TCP behaves when switching gateways and also the capture and unfairness problems of TCP.
