The article relates the factors needed to be considered by companies that are thinking of venturing into the field of wireless networks services in the U.S. The upcoming AWS spectrum auction will result in an explosion of enterprises involved with design and development of new wireless networks. One of the factors that might mislead newcomers in the wireless network arena are the network design literature which tends to portray wireless design as a straightforward process.

    TCP performs poorly in wireless mobile networks due to large bit error rates. Basically, the TCP sender responds to these losses as if they were due to congestion in the network, and reduces the congestion window unnecessarily. In earlier work, it has been shown that adding a TCP header checksum...
