End-to-End algebraic network coding for wireless TCP/IP networks


The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) was designed to provide reliable transport services in wired networks. In such networks, packet losses mainly occur due to congestion. Hence, TCP was designed to apply congestion avoidance techniques to cope with packet losses. Nowadays, TCP is also utilized in wireless networks where, besides congestion, numerous other reasons for packet losses exist. This results in reduced throughput and increased transmission round-trip time when the state of the wireless channel is bad. We propose a new network layer, that transparently sits below the transport layer and hides non congestion-imposed packet losses from TCP. The network coding in this new layer is based on the well-known class of Maximum Distance Separable (MDS) codes.
