Packet loss in the cognitive packet network
Packet loss affects the ability of the network to satisfy the needs of its users. Packet loss can occur because of either congestion in the network, or because of transmission errors. It is important to reduce packet loss because applications such as real-time application and TCP-based applications are both sensitive to packet loss. The network should support some mechanism for reducing the loss experienced by its applications. This thesis presents a method for incorporating loss measurements into the Cognitive Packet Network. The idea of a Cumulative Loss is considered) which is defined as the loss from the source to the destination through the next hop. In addi- tion, a method is presented that allows for the combination of loss and delay as QoS constraints. These modifications are then tested to support their implementation.
