Abstract
Streaming applications over Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANET) require a smooth transmission rate. The Internet is unable to provide this service during traffic congestion in the network. Designing congestion control for these applications is challenging, because the standard TCP congestion control mechanism is not able to handle the special properties of a shared wireless multi hop channel well. In particular, the frequent changes to the network topology and the shared nature of the wireless channel pose major challenges. In this paper, we propose a novel approach, which allows a quick increase of throughput by using explicit feedback from routers.
