    Abstract

    As the current status quo behind the envisioned future all-IP wireless networks is the support of IP technology all the way down to the mobile host, wireless networks quickly become an integral part of the Internet. The specific characteristics of the last wireless hop together with the round trip time (RTT) variation due to congestion and different number of traversed routers in the Internet affects the end-to-end TCP/IP traffic characteristics. Increased packet loss due to the wireless channel together with a span of three orders of magnitude in RTT between flows makes optimization of such networks a challenging task. At the same time wireless networks expected to have a different traffic matrix from the Internet, by continuing to carry large volume of non-responsive traffic. In this communication, the subtle coupled of these different issues on TCP performance are explored. (21 References).
