With the advances of wireless communication technologies, wireless networks gradually become the most adopted communication networks in the new generation Internet. Computing devices and mobile devices may be equipped with multiple wired and/or wireless network interfaces. Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) has been proposed for reliable data transport and its multihoming feature makes use of network interfaces effectively to improve performance and reliability. However, like TCP, SCTP suffers unnecessary performance degradation over wired-wireless heterogeneous networks. The main reason is that the original congestion control scheme of SCTP cannot differentiate loss events so that SCTP reduces the congestion window inappropriately. In order to solve this problem and improve performance, we propose a jitter-based congestion control scheme with end-to-end semantics over wired-wireless networks. Besides, we solved ineffective jitter ratio problem which may cause original jitter-based congestion control scheme to misjudge congestion loss as wireless loss. Available bandwidth estimation scheme will be integrated into our congestion control mechanism to make the bottleneck more stabilized. Simulation experiments reveal that our scheme (JSCTP) gives prominence to improve performance effectively over wired-wireless networks.
