A new control structure is proposed to improve user experience of wireless Internet. Information on radio bandwidth and queue length available in the radio network, close to the base station, is used in a proxy that resides between the Internet and the cellular system. The control algorithm in the proxy sets the window size according to event-triggered information on radio bandwidth changes and time-triggered information on the queue length at the wireless link. The mechanism is compared to TCP Reno in two simulation scenarios. The first scenario models a dedicated channel with stepwise changes in the bandwidth, while the second scenario models the High-speed Downlink Shared Channel recently introduced by 3GPP. The proposed mechanism significantly reduces the amount of buffer space needed in the radio network, and it also gives modest improvements to user response time and link utilization. Reduced buffering is particularly beneficial for third-party end-to-end real-time services such as voice, video, and online gaming.
