Abstract

When multiple nodes share the same gateway or access the same link, the throughput of wireless communications has the unfortunate problem of being limited by traffic congestion; the situation may also further degrade if they establish multiple TCP connections mapped over the same access channel. In end-to-end connections, TCP congestion control plays a critical role in order to not overflow the channel, although most of the network bandwidth bottlenecks are caused by the wireless systems. When TCP is coupled with high-delay channels, the protocol underperform; this is mainly due to long propagation delay, as it is the case with satellite links. To overcome the limitations of TCP on these links, various variants have been proposed, both rate-based or or burst-based. In this paper we present a cooperative transmission control that enhances the effectiveness of TCP asking only for a narrow senderside modification, operating exclusively at the access stage. It allows to boost throughput over high delay channels, increasing also fairness and friendliness between different TCP algorithms. After the description, we validate its effectiveness and show its properties by means of experimental results, derived from simulations performed on the ns-3 network simulator.
