Abstract

We consider the impact of system-related overheads on the performance of two reliable transport protocols (TCP and XCP) over wireless links. Our measurement results indicate that various components providing networking support at a wireless host collectively have significant impact on transport layer performance. Furthermore, the relative performance of protocols is dependent on the host's network subsystem configuration. These results highlight the importance of considering system-dependent behaviors in wireless network protocol evaluations
