A decision maker for transport protocol configuration

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper proposes an approach, called Protocol Configuration Decision Maker, for TCP to dynamically adapt to a network environment. The proposed mechanism monitors the network condition with parameters like loss rate. Then it consults a knowledge database to see whether a better performance can be achieved and replaces a relevant TCP module with the one instructed by the database. Through simulation studies, we show that our mechanism helps TCP achieve better throughput than normal TCP Reno, up to 80-194%.
