Performance Analysis of TCP over Satellite ATM
We described the satellite link impairments and the necessary TCP enhancements for satellite networks in Chapter 7. Several design options exist for transporting TCP over satellite with onboard ATM switch. These design options include: (a) end system policies — Vanilla TCP, Selective ACK, Fast Retransmit, and Recovery (b) buffer management — Early Packet Discard (EPD), Tail Drop, per-VC accounting (c) feedback control—explicit rate, end-to-end, hop-by-hop and (d) queue management — per-class queuing, per-VC queuing. In the previous chapter, we described simulation results for buffer requirements using satellite ATM UBR service.
