New Delay-based Fast Retransmission Policy for CMT-SCTP

By Lal Pratap Verma Varun Kumar Sharma Mahesh Kumar

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Mar. 2018

Concurrent Multipath Transfer (CMT) uses multi-homing feature of Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) to transfer data concurrently over the multiple paths. CMT provides bandwidth aggregation, fault tolerance, and reliability in multipath data transfer. In multipath data transmission, each path has different delay and bandwidth. Therefore, destination receives unordered data which causes receiver buffer blocking and unwanted congestion window (cwnd) reduction. Both the problem degrades the CMT performance significantly. Thus, this paper proposes a new delay-based fast retransmission policy to adjust the transmission rate of each path according to path delay. Simulation results show that the proposed approach achieves better throughput, reduces the number of the timeout and improves the cwnd growth. The proposed approach improved throughput up to 16% in variable packet loss and 18% in variable network delay environment.

A Fuzzy-based Adaptive Energy Efficient Load Distribution Scheme in Ad-hoc Networks

By Varun Kumar Sharma Lal Pratap Verma Mahesh Kumar

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Feb. 2018

The traditional energy aware routing policies are not capable enough to keep up with dynamic properties of mobile ad-hoc network (e.g., mobility, quick topology changes, link-layer contentions etc.) and do not offer adequate performance in high congested situations. In past decades, authors have expressed their concerns towards smart routing paradigms concerning lesser energy consumption. However, many of these proposals are not able to offer significant performance concerning the quality of service. Consequently, the pattern of interest shifts towards cross-layer energy optimization schemes. These proposals did use of lower layers’ special information and provide significant performance enhancements. Still, many of the issues are associated with these proposals. Moreover, many of the proposals consider idle and sleep power consumption which too causes a considerable amount of energy consumption. Nevertheless, these methods require complex synchronization and efficient coordination which is too inefficient for extremely variable networks (MANETs). To address these issues, we propose an effective fuzzy- based energy efficient load distribution scheme which takes care of energy consumption considering congestion as a parameter. In comparison with some of the existing energy aware routing strategies, proposed method offers substantial improvements in terms of total energy consumption, network lifetime, total number of dead nodes, and average throughput.
