TCP in Wireless Environment: Problems and Solutions
Abstract-The emergence of high-speed multimedia services in wireless applications, advancements in the field of wireless internet-based IP communications, and modern enhancements or modifications to this protocol suite for greater performance are all factors to consider. Throughout the decades, wireless technology has been extensively employed to investigate its potential in delivering long-term solutions to a variety of challenges. There has been a lot of research done in the Wireless Network environment, and it has has a
oad range of applications, demonstrating that this technology is quite efficient. The additive increase multiplicative decreases control of congestion of standard TCP protocol approaches the steady state, that shows efficiency of the protocol in terms of link utilisation and throughput, depending upon the notion that losses of packets are indications of congestion of network. When the end-to-end path also comprises wireless communications, however, this premise falls apart. End-to-end delay, overhead, ARQ, ACK, congestion, and QoS are all taken into account while analysing the various methods. Because of its impotency to identify losses of packets induced by congestion of network, the unmodified standard TCP performs badly in a wireless setting, according to numerous studies. With a
ief introduction of TCP, we explore the issues TCP encounters in the wireless IP communication context as well as provide specific examples of feasible solutions.
Key Words: TCP, Wireless Networks,Congestion,QoS,Internet Protocol
I. Introduction:
A collection of hundreds or more nodes constitutes a Wireless Network. These networks can be operated in different applications which require unattended operations which can directly communicate with the external base station that provides a range of sensing over a large geographical location with high accuracy or it may also communicate among themselves. These have a
oad range of applications namely personal communication, military, environment monitoring, battlefields. In recent years, a number of energy-efficient sensor-network techniques or protocols have been introduced. Wireless communications have become more widely employed on the WLAN level as weH in recent years for radio mobile networks as a means of emigrating to an IP world. However, using TCP protocols in wireless networks comes with a number of issues, one of which is assuring a legitimate end-to-end data transfer. TCP, at the same time, thinks primary cause of loss of packet on the internet is congestion, and as a result, it provides techniques to deal with congestion. Packet loss in mobile networks is mostly caused by physical link characteristics and connection failure. If TCP is utilised in such networks, these losses will be interpreted as congestion issues. This isn't the case at all. TCP can be adapted to wireless contexts in a variety of ways. There are many approaches to adapt TCP to wireless environments.
One of the c1 classification of the solutions is as follows
• Proposed solutions for extending standard TCP to the wireless communication environment. This can be accomplished by adding new algorithms and motions to existing systems, or by revamping them entirely.
• TCP IP protocol stack modification solutions
Separating the rest of the link from the wireless link is the first method.
This is refe
ed to as hy
id architecture. Snooping-TCP Indirect-TCP, and WTCP among these approaches are discussed.
•Link layer solutions or application layer solutions are only found in a few other existing systems.
Fig 1 Shows the data and ACK transmission process. It illustrates the entire flow of data and acknowledgement between source and receiver side.
Fig 1: Data and ACK Transmission Process
When the load of the network is less, the throughput rises rapidly, but the delay will rise slowly; when the load increases after the Knee point, the throughput will increase slowly, but the delay will increase rapidly; and when the load exceeds the Cliff point, a rapid decrease in the throughput is observed, while the delay increases rapidly. When a network is ove
urdened, packets take longer to a
ive and have a higher chance of being dropped. The router will spend its link bandwidth to transmit redundant packet copies due to the sender's unneeded retransmission with a long time delay. The sender will retransmit the packet that was dropped due to cache overflow when the risk of packet drop increases. As a result, link transmission capacity will be wasted, and the effective utilisation rate would be reduced. The following are the direct causes of congestion: • Inadequate storage space; insufficiency of capacity of bandwidth; and poor processor management all contribute to congestion. The three causes listed above must be considered in so as to avoid traffic congestion.
ent Internet congestion control system is on TCP window control, with IP layer routers playing a minor role. In this paper, we discuss some of the issues and some of the solutions that have been presented. The major issue is then addressed by providing our solution, which we refer to as FACK-TCP (for Forced Acknowledgement TCP), as well as its design and behaviour. The establishment of a protocol that is transparent to both endpoints and simply deployable is the
eakthrough that we have made in this proposal. Finally, we show some of the outcomes of our simulations and compare them to those of TCP-Reno and Snooping-TCP. In this paper, Section II deals with Existing algorithms, section III discusses the comparison of the existing algorithms based on different parameters and section IV finally concluding the paper.
II. Existing Algorithms
The operation of different algorithms related to TCP are discussed in this section. The overview of some of the promising algorithms are discussed and their drawbacks are pinpointed to give the scope for future research work.
A. Adaptation of Protocol Radio Mobile Network

According to Split-connection Strategy, the relationship between the mobile host (MH) and the fixed host (FH) is divided with the help of a Mobile Support Router (MSR). This approach was used by one of the original protocols [1]. The MSR is a router that is housed in the base station. The fundamental benefit of this protocol is that it allows packets to be forwarded from the fixed host (FH) to mobile host (MH). This protocol isolates a wireless network's flow and congestion constraints from a fixed network. Furthermore, mistakes in transmission and packet losses on the wireless link will prevent transfer to the fixed network. However, there are several drawbacks to this strategy. End-to-end TCP semantics are lost Acknowledgements don't have a end to end meaning. Before the packets a
ive at the destination of the mobile host, acknowledgement packets may a
ive at the fixed sender host.Overhead is another drawback of this approach: here, each packet introduces overhead. This is due to the fact that At the MSR, TCP packets are created twice. Data starting from incoming TCP to outgoing TCP must be copied at the MSR. It saves the fixed host in two ways with this method. [2]. The first approach is ARQ (Automatic Repeat request), in which data is divided to packets and then e
or checking sequences (usually through CRC computing) are attached, allowing the receiver to check for packets that are co
upted and request retransmission. The second approach is FEC (Forward E
or Co
ection) is a technique for e
or detection and co
ection at the receiver in which unwanted blocks are combined with information packets before they are transmitted. End-to-end TCP enhancements: This strategy aims to increase the...
