Hop-by-Hop Transport Control for Multi-Hop Wireless Networks Hop-by-Hop Transport Control for Multi-Hop Wireless Networks

by Scofield, Daniel N

Abstract (Summary)
TCP can perform poorly in multi-hop wireless networks due to problems with contention and poor feedback from end-to-end control algorithms. This thesis explores the design of a hop-by-hop transport protocol (HxH). By allowing intermediate nodes to actively participate, the protocol can respond more quickly to changing network conditions and exploit the unique characteristics of wireless networks. Results indicate that hop-by-hop transport can achieve throughput rates that are double those of TCP, depending on the speed of the wireless links.
