Factors such as high BER, unstable channel characteristics, and user mobility may all con- tribute to packet losses. Many studies have shown that the unmodified standard TCP performs poorly in a wireless environ- ment due to its inability to distinguish packet losses caused by

TCP can exploit mobility hints from lower layers to heuristically distinguish losses due to handoffs. For these losses, TCP can avoid halving the slow start threshold during recovery, thus skip- ping the congestion avoidance phase. Another approach is for wireless link endpoints
