Optimizing TCP over Mobile Broadband

30% higher throughput
Sean Hinde

Mobile Broadband doesn’t work well enough User Experience: • Hanging web page loads • Inconsistent throughput • “Reload” button addiction Radio NW Core NW Mobile Broadband Internet .

Reducing the problems Improve Coverage: • Fill in coverage holes • Tune radio network parameters Increase capacity: • New infrastructure • Upgrade/change technology • Transmit less data (compress/cache) Radio NW Core NW Mobile Broadband Internet .

Internet and TCP/IP built for fixed lines Radio NW: • Lost packets: Normal • Long /variable round trip time: Normal • Slow start: Waste of allocated channel Internet: • Lost packets: Congestion. back off • Long /variable round trip time: Multiply timers • Slow start: Safe way to set up connections Radio NW Core NW Mobile Broadband Internet .

Teclo Sambal 30% higher throughput Even on a well-optimized network! .

Teclo Sambal – a ”bridge” between NW’s TCP/IP otimized for radio TCP/IP otimized for internet Teclo Sambal Radio NW Core NW Mobile Broadband Internet .

Teclo Sambal vs Base 3G network Density Througput .

Benefits from Sambal Deployment To Subscriber: • • • • Fewer hanging sessions Faster browsing More consistent service Higher satisfaction To Operator: • • • • Reduced Channel Element usage Push congested links harder Improved ”coverage” Reduced costs Radio NW Core NW Mobile Broadband Internet .

3G core network with Sambal Standard terminal software • No modifications to the PC or phone • No modifications to the dongle • No changes to your provisioning Install inline / via BPR • Easy installation • Failsafe operation Standard OA&M system • Juniper compatible CLI • Feed counters and alarms into your monitoring system • Almost no training needed for your personnel Teclo Sambal Standard Hardware • HP DL380 (2*6 cores) rack mounted server(s) • 10Gb optical network cards or multiple 1Gb ethernet cards • Add this server to your SLA No compression • No changes to what is downloaded at all • Combine compression with Teclo Sambal to combine acceleration effects .
