A QoS-aware AIMD protocol for time-sensitive applications in wired/wireless networks
Abstract— A TCP-friendly Additive Increase and Multiplicative Decrease (AIMD) protocol is proposed to support timesensitive applications in hybrid wired/wireless networks. By analyzing the performance of AIMD-controlled flows in hybrid networks, we propose a cross-layer procedure to select the AIMD protocol parameters with consideration of wireless link characteristics and application QoS requirements, in terms of delay, loss, and throughput. Since the cross-layer interaction only exchanges parameters among the application, the transport layer protocol, and the link layer protocol, our approach preserves the end-toend semantics of the transport protocol and the layered structure of the Internet, and it is applicable to supporting various multimedia applications over heterogeneous wireless links. With appropriate parameters, AIMD-controlled flows can fairly share network resources with TCP flows, efficiently utilize wireless resources, and statistically guarantee end-to-end delay ...
