Communication control mechanism to adapt the quality change of a communication channel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this paper, we describe a communication control mechanism that can dynamically adapt to the quality changes of a communication channel. Specifically, we propose a communication control mechanism that adapts to the quality changes of the communication channel. To implement this mechanism, we model the communication flow and derive equations for the communication time and the optimum window size that minimizes the communication time. The problems of existing communication control protocols are explained, and a new communication control protocol that solves these problems is presented. Furthermore, to implement a communication control mechanism employing the optimum window size, we propose a simple equation for the optimum window size and demonstrate its effectiveness by evaluating the implementation of the communication control mechanism.
