Abstract

Congestion control in wireless networks has been extensively investigated over the years and several schemes and techniques have been developed, all with the aim of improving performance in wireless net-work. With the rapid expansion and implementation of wireless technology it is essential that the congestion control problem be solved. This paper presents a survey of five congestion control schemes which are dif-ferent in slow start threshold calculation, bandwidth estimation, and congestion window manipulation. A comprehensive comparison of these approaches is given in relation to assumptions, bandwidth estimation, congestion window size manipulation, performance evaluation, fairness and friendliness and improved throughput.
