Abstract

A procedure is described which improves the efficiency of TCPilP over wireless links without any requirement to modify the applications TCPiIP stack. The procedure describes how it is possible through the use of a link layer air interface connection oriented protocol, to remove the need to transport the connection setup, connection termination and acknowledgement messages over the air interface and hence significantly reduce air interface traffic.
