Dynamic Coding for TCP Transmission Reliability in Multi-hop Wireless Networks

Abstract : Recent research shows that random linear network coding is adapted to current network systems to provide transmission reliability. In lossy wireless networks, TCP traffic has to resist against losses by a suitable network coding scheme and redundancy control. Whenever TCP wants to transmit a packet, the original TCP/NC could send more than one coded packets which combine all non-ACKed packets remained in the TCP congestion window. Packet losses are essentially masked by TCP/NC from the congestion control algorithm. The original TCP/NC lacks an adaptive redundancy control to compensate errors in time. We present Dynamic Coding - DynCod, a new coding scheme, to address this problem. In DynCod, when TCP wants to transmit a packet, DynCod will code this packet with others non-ACKed in TCP congestion window. Therefore, the latest data is always transformed and presented by only one coded packet at a time. Thank to this progressive encoding of DynCod, any decoding failures at destination can be seen as a signal of loss. The source can be informed via TCP ACKs and adjust the number of redundant packets accordingly. We have compared the performances of DynCod and TCP/NC using NS-2. The simulation results show that DynCod outperforms the original TCP/NC in terms of throughput and packet delivery time.
