Empirical cross-layer model of TCP throughput in multihop wireless chain
2010 (English)Report (Other academic)
Analysis of TCP throughput in multihop wireless networks is a continuously important research topic. Yet a neat and practically useful formula for the TCP transfer rate similar to the macroscopic model of TCP in the Internet, however, capturing the cross-layer dependencies is unavailable for wireless networks. In this paper we statistically analyze the significance of parameters on physical, MAC and transport layers in a multihop wireless chains and derive a practically usable cross-layer throughput formula. The resulting model allows estimation of the throughput with less than 2% error.
