Wireless TCP

• Indirect TCP to split the TCP connection into two separate connections
• first one from sender to base station the second from base station to receiver
• the advantage is both connections are homogeneous
• The disadvantage is that it breaks the semantics of TCP
• There is another solution for keeping the semantics of TCP is the Transactional
Transactional TCP
The above figure (a) shows the normal RPC call where nine messages are exchanged between the client and the server

Figure (b) shows the one with Transactional TCP T/TCP where request and SYN and also FIN are sent together thus reducing the messages and providing faster service
