A Performance Evaluation of Dynamic Transport Switching for Multi-Transport Devices A Performance Evaluation of Dynamic Transport Switching for Multi-Transport Devices

by Wang, Lei 1978-

Abstract (Summary)
Multi-transport devices are becoming more common, but sophisticated software is needed to fully realize the advantages of these devices. In this paper, we examine the performance of dynamic transport switching, which selects the best available transport for communication between two devices. We simulate transport switching within the Quality of Transport (QoT) architecture and show that it can effectively mitigate the effects of congestion and interference for connections between two multi-transport devices. We then evaluate dynamic transport switching overhead to characterize its effect on application throughput. Based on these insights, we identify several limitations of the QoT architecture and present solutions to improve performance.
