Abstract

In this paper, a packet size control algorithm, fully compliant with the IEEE 802.16e standard, has been proposed. This algorithm aims to optimize the performance of a data link ARQ protocol, trying to evaluate dynamically the packet size that maximizes the mean advancement of the sender window. It offers the possibility to maximize system throughput in every mobile scenario, even in presence of wireless time-variant channels. The effectiveness of the defined algorithm has been evaluated, through computer simulation, in terms of normalized TCP Goodput. Simulation results have shown that the dynamic choice of the frame size plays a important role in maximizing TCP performance.
