In the modern era the uses of wireless devices are becoming ubiquitous and these networks have become an increasingly important part of global communication architecture. Most of the wireless networks have fixed infrastructure and the need for mobile wireless networks are growing rapidly, which requires higher data rates. Due to high data rate in wireless networks the TCP performance has a broad and significant impact on data applications. The uses of extensive local retransmission mechanism in wireless networks are adequate. In order to improve the performance of TCP/IP, a RETSINA agent is implemented along with the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). Performance has been analyzed for the TCP/IP with and without RETSINA agent for the metrics throughput and latency.
