A New Delay-Based Congestion Control for Ad-Hoc Wireless Network
The traditional congestion control mechanism of transport control protocol (TCP) has been proved cannot satisfy the wireless scenario. The extensive research has been done to understand the drawback of TCP in wireless networks. In this paper, we proposed a new congestion control algorithms for mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET) at the TCP sender side which efficiently adapts to the maximum transmission rate of a mobile wireless link, the new algorithms follow the idea of FAST TCP which uses delay as congestion measure. However, FAST TCP has limitations when used over a dynamic mobile wireless link with a high frame error ratio (FER) and frequent delay changes due to the variable rate. The new algorithms overcome this shortcoming by improving the congestion signal choice. By using analysis, we proved that the new congestion control mechanism provides superior performance over mobile wireless network environments.
