Impact of Delayed Acknowledgments on Transport Layer Performance over Low Orbit Constellations

2019 Journal of Spacecraft and Rockets  
By default, the TCP enables delayed acknowledgment (DelAck) that might increase the end-to-end delay when performing over satellite link-layer recovery schemes.  ...  This motivates the present paper, which aims to quantify the impact of such a TCP option in the context of low Earth orbit satellite constellations.  ...  Chen et al. [10] studied the impact of DelAck on a TCP over wireless links and showed that their impact on TCP performance depended on 1) the topology used, and 2) the path length.  ...

Satellite-TCP: A Flow Control Algorithm for Satellite Network

K. Sindhu Raj, B. Thanudas, N. Radhika, V. S. Smitha
2015 Indian Journal of Science and Technology  
TCP was designed to be flexible and robust but it cannot perform efficiently over the satellite links with long delay.  ...  The proposed Flow Control Algorithm called Satellite-TCP is based on controlling the flow of Negative Acknowledgement packets (NACK), according to the level of congestion at the network.  ...  Satellite link characteristics, namely long propagation delays, large bandwidth-delay products, and high bit error rates, have serious impact on the performance of satellite network.  ...
