Abstract

This paper proposes two new congestion control schemes for packet switched wireless networks. Starting from the seminal work of Kelly (Kelly et al., Dec 1999), we consider the decentralized flow control model for a TCP-like scheme and extend it to the wireless scenario. Motivated by the presence of channel errors, we introduce updates in the part of the model representing the number of connections the user establishes with the network; this assumption has important physical interpretation. Specifically, we propose two updates: the first is static, while the second evolves dynamically. The global stability of both schemes has been proved; also, a stochastic stability study and the rate of convergence of the two algorithms have been investigated. This paper focuses on the delay sensitivity of both schemes. A stability condition on the parameters of the system is introduced and proved. Moreover, some deeper insight on the structure of the oscillations of the system is attained. To support the theoretical results, simulations are provided. Copyright © 2005 IFAC.
