Summary: Multi-Modal Network Protocols

Many of the basic parameters of a ubiquitous computing
environment are highly variable. For example, rate of mobility,
quality of wireless communication, density of communicating
nodes, power constraints and computational constraints all vary
greatly from situation to situation. Unfortunately, existing routing
protocols, transport protocols and adaptive applications can only
adapt in a limited way. One feature that is missing from many
systems is the ability to identify gross operating conditions and
take on very different modes of operation. Such adaptability
would improve the efficiency of many solutions. We use the term
multi-modal protocols to describe systems that adapt in this way.
We have explored two such systems: Wireless TCP and Overlay
Multi-modal Wireless TCP
Our initial experiments concentrate on adapting the behavior of
