The evolution from wired system to the wireless environment opens a set of challenge for the improvement of the wireless system performances because of many of their weakness compared to wired networks. To achieve this goal, cross layer techniques are used to facilitate the sharing of information between the layers of the OSI model. In some precedent works, the Reverse Cross Layer (RCL) method has been proposed to facilitate the design of cross layer conceptual models. The method has the

The method may be applied to a given protocol stack or to an existent cross layer model to integrate new interactions. In this paper, we are applying the RCL method on the stack that uses the Stream Control Transport Protocol (SCTP) at the transport layer and the Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) at the network layer. Cross layer conceptual models are produced based on new cross layer interactions that are proposed to populate the environment subsystem built with the application of the RCL method. The improvement of the environment subsystem is specified through the performance gains provide by the new interactions. The implementation of the interactions that impact the SCTP protocol is described in the Interaction Description Array. After the introduction, Section II of this paper presents an overview of the SCTP protocol. Section III is related to the overview of the OLSR protocol. Section IV is used for the application of the RCL method and the different interaction arrays it generates. Section V presents the improvement of the environment subsystem and the definition of the performance gain of each Cross Layer Atomic Action (CLAA).

Cross-Layer Extended Persistent Timeout Policy for SCTP and DSDV [article]

Cross layer techniques applied to various protocols stacks provide fair information sharing between OSI model layers. The performance gains have been demonstrated for many studied systems within protocols interactions. The example is illustrative of the reliable transport protocols that use retransmissions to achieve that reliability function. The performance gains of the persistent timeout policy for the management of the retransmission timeout have been produce in some recent works when

The goal was to give an appropriate behavior in response to a bad state of the wireless channel that occurs and temporally blocks the transmission of data. The channel state is given by the 802.11 link layer through cross-layer mechanism. In this paper, the persistent policy is extended to the network layer and is applied to a stack that uses a reactive routing protocol, namely the Destination Sequenced Distance-Vector (DSDV) protocol that also generates additional periodic traffic regardless to the channel state. We are measuring the influence in terms of performance gains of the extended persistent policy because of the additional periodic signalization messages deriving from the used routing protocol. After the introduction in section I; Section II of this paper presents an overview of the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP). Section III describes the behavior of the DSDV protocol. Section IV presents the extended persistent timeout policy principle and Section V presents the simulation results used to compare the using of the traditional and the extended persistent timeout policies applied to the same protocol stack using SCTP and DSDV.
