Future transport protocols for wireless environments

Abstract [en]

This report's main focus is the Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP), which is a proposed solution to how to provide congestion control to unreliable flows operating in the general Internet. It has caught the interest of the wireless community, since the wireless industry stands before the challenge of developing support for multimedia services in the 3rd generation mobile systems. This initial evaluation has been carried out to be able to give prompt feedback to the design process and to increase the understanding of what is needed from a future transport protocol both from an application and a wireless perspective. One of the conclusions drawn from the evaluation is that the congestion control algorithms DCCP offers primarily limit its utility. At present, support for real-time applications seems to be missing. Thus, DCCP does not solve the entire problem space.
