TCP-Call Admission Control Interaction in Multiplatform Space Architectures
EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking volume 2007, Article number: 023923 (2007)
The implementation of efficient call admission control (CAC) algorithms is useful to prevent congestion and guarantee target quality of service (QoS). When TCP protocol is adopted, some inefficiencies can arise due to the peculiar evolution of the congestion window. The development of cross-layer techniques can greatly help to improve efficiency and flexibility for wireless networks. In this frame, the present paper addresses the introduction of TCP feedback into the CAC procedures in different nonterrestrial wireless architectures. CAC performance improvement is shown for different space-based architectures, including both satellites and high altitude platform (HAP) systems.
