Mean Waiting Delay for Web Object Transfer in Wireless SCTP Environment

Summary: Mean Waiting Delay for Web Object Transfer
in Wireless SCTP Environment
Abstract-Most current web application use HTTP (Hyper Text
Transfer Protocol) and TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) to
retrieve objects from the Internet. SCTP (Stream Control
Transmission Protocol) is recently proposed transport protocol
with congestion control mechanism similar to that of TCP.
Waiting delay is an important performance criterion for when
transferring web object over the Internet. In this paper, we
present an analytical model of mean waiting delay for object
transfers over the Internet in a wireless using the SCTP as the
transport protocol and compare with the mean waiting in using
TCP. Validation of the model using experimental results show
that the mean waiting delay for HTTP over SCTP is less than
that for HTTP over TCP. This is caused by the small slow-start
time of SCTP.
Most web applications use HTTP (hyper text transfer
protocol) as the transfer protocol to retrieve objects in the
Internet. HTTP is a connection-oriented protocol and uses
