Improving TCP Performance over High-Bandwidth Geostationary Satellite Links
Journal : M.S. Thesis Number: CSHCN MS 1999-7
In this thesis we consider an alternative network architecture, where largeheterogeneous networks are built from small homogeneous networksinterconnected by carefully designed proxy systems. We describe the designand implementation of such a proxy and demonstrate marked performanceimprovements over both actual and simulated satellite channels. We alsodiscuss some benefits and drawbacks of using proxies in networks andexplore some tradeoffs in proxy design.
