Paper Abstract

Headers of IP packets are growing and the bandwidth required for transmitting headers is increasing. To overcome such limitations, current protocol mechanisms need to be improved. This paper addresses this important issue - Header Compression Scheme. Our compression scheme is presented and compared with some other previous methods. We can show how to reduce the size ofUDP/IP headers down to several limited bytes to efficiently use the bandwidth. In order to efficiently transfer data over lossy links, the congestion control module in our scheme is also discussed. With the information from congestion control, the size of the window mentioned above can be changed according to the congestion situation. When severe congestion is probed, the decrease of window size can obviously increase the stability of the system. This is another key error avoidance step in our system. Finally, we analyze our system under windows 2000 and Ns2 framework. The experimental data are given to testify the validity and performance of our scheme.
