An Analytical Study of a Tradeoff Between Transmission Power and FEC for TCP Optimization in Wireless Networks
- It is well known that TCP has performance problems when wireless links are involved in the end-to-end connection. This is due to the high bit error rate characterizing wireless links. Appropriate power management and error correction can improve the link reliability observed by TCP and increase the throughput performance accordingly. In the literature, the effects of transmission power and error correction capability on TCP performance have been considered separately, so far. In this paper, a study of the tradeoff between power management and error correction is presented. To this end, an analytical framework to maximize a user satisfaction function, defined as the ratio between the TCP throughput and a cost function, is introduced. The proposed analytical framework does not depend on the specific wireless system and does not rely on any TCP throughput approximation formula. The benefits of joint power management and error control are demonstrated in several relevant case studies....
