Wireless Multi-path TCP Westwood+ Modification to Achieve Fairness in HSDPA[Conference 2]
December 21, 2010
This is my second publication, and my first international paper. after so many critiques on my paper, at last, an IEEE conference accepted my paper with minor revision from the reviewer, especially on grammar😛 . This paper was presented on Pisa, Italy on November 2010 in Grand Hotel Duomo Pisa. This paper will be published in IEEExplore soon in proceeding European Modelling Symposium (EMS 2010).

Abstract – Multipath is a technique to increase the reliability of the internet connection for an IP network. The implementation of this technique can be described as a host with two TCP paths work together, when one of them fails the other will back up the connection. Since TCP does not support multihoming, the right term for this technique is multipath. The fairness problem arises when multipath host use the same bottleneck link with another singlepath host. This problem can be solved by scaling down each subflow on the multipath by modifying the Congestion Control on Westwood+. This paper will design a Multipath protocol which will use the same weighing method on BMC and a few modification on weight calculation by exploiting the Bandwidth Estimation on Westwood+ congestion control, this multipath protocol will be mentioned as Normalize Uniform High-Adaptability (NUHA) TCP. The simulation will be conducted on HSDPA air interface to represent the wireless condition using network simulator 2. The results show that the multipath protocol NUHA TCP works well in lossy network without violating the fairness.
unfortunately, only my paper reached that place…me… i’ll come later..
