Transport Challenges in Wireless Multi-Hop Networks

Niky Riga

Abstract:

Reliable data transmission over wireless multi-hop networks has proven
to be non-trivial. Initial studies in the area showed the inadequacy of
TCP to serve as a transport protocol in wireless environments and
especially over ad hoc networks where the topology is dynamic and there
is no infrastructure provided.  

In this talk I will present a survey of proposed solutions, debate
whether a mere modification to TCP is enough to overcome the old invalid
all-wireline assumption, and discuss architectural changes that
challenge conventional layered design.
