The Transmission Control Protocol is the transport layer protocol for reliable data transmission in the Internet. The original specification [111] dates back to 1981. Although many enhancements have been made over the years, the basic protocol assumptions are still valid. Almost every reliable network service uses TCP as underlying transport protocol. As wireless Internet access becomes more and more popular and feasible, it is a straightforward approach to use TCP also over wireless links. Furthermore, the widespread usage of TCP in the ordinary networking and Internet access almost demands usage of TCP to remain compatible with existing systems.
