Adaptive Transport Layer Protocols for Wireless Networks


Lian Wang


Vol. 6  No. 9  pp. 50-55


The future wireless networks should be a heterogeneous network with flexible and open architecture, capable of supporting various types of networks, terminals and applications. However how to integrate the protocols to meet the heterogeneous network environments becomes a significant challenge in the fourth generation wireless network. Adaptive protocols are proposed to solve heterogeneity problem in future wireless networks. The main objective of this paper is to explore the feasibility of adaptive transport layer protocols applied to the future wireless networks, based on the analysis of adaptive congestion mechanism compared with TCP congestion control, and the characteristics of the adaptive transport layer protocols proposed
