"Queue Management for TCP Traffic over 3G Links"
by Mats S??gfors, Reiner Ludwig, Michael Meyer, and Janne Peisa,
in Proceedings of the Wireless Communications and Networking Conference 2003, vol. 3, pp 1663-1668Media streaming over 3G networks such as the UMTS is quite challenging because of the dynamic and unpredictable radio links, available bandwidth, loss rate, and delay. We propose a novel wireless queue management protocol (WQMP) tailored to the specific characteristics of Web browsing over third generation (3G) cellular networks. Such links are often the bottleneck for an end-to-end connection and often dedicated to one host. Taking advantage of these specific characteristics, we developed a queuing scheme that is simpler than popular random early detection (RED) schemes and other active queue management schemes. Despite its simplicity, our solution yields superior performance for 3G links networks in terms of high link utilization, low queuing delay, and high end-to-end throughput for TCP bulk data transfers. Our simulation results show a clear win over the- conventional drop-tail queuing, active queue management scheme and RED scheme. The design, analysis, and operation of media streaming systems that use path diversity are considered, with emphasis on the accurate performance models needed to select the best paths or best servers, among the many present in the whole network.
