Mean Response Time Estimation for HTTP over SCTP in Wireless Environment
 

Summary: Mean Response Time Estimation for HTTP over
SCTP in Wireless Environment
Abstract-HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol) and
TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) are usually used
to retrieve objects in the Internet. Stream Control
Transmission Protocol (SCTP) has attractive multi-
streaming feature, which allows for independent
delivery among streams, thus can avoid the head-of-
line blocking experienced by TCP and reduce the
mean response time of users. We present an analytical
model and algorithm to estimate the mean response
time for HTTP over SCTP and compare with that of
HTTP over TCP in the wireless environment. We
validate the accuracy of our model using experiments.
It is shown that mean response time for HTTP over
SCTP is less than that for HTTP over TCP by 20% on
average.
I. INTRODUCTION
HTTP is a transfer protocol used by the World Wide
Web distributed hypermedia systems to retrieve objects
