Abstract
Cross-Layer Cache and Queue Management for Resilient Tactical Networks (CLCQMRTN) is an integrated queue management and flow control mechanism that eliminates packet drops due to burst-induced congestion or due to disconnection in tactical wireless networks. CLCQMRTN controls TCP flow rates, works even with encrypted data packets (black core), and operates even if stable end-to-end paths are not available (disruption-tolerant networking). We propose a suite of innovative mechanisms that provide queue monitoring and overflow alerting, queue status dissemination, external buffer storage and retrieval, TCP "freezing" to operate over outages and extended storage delays, disruption-tolerant routing and alternate path routing. Our mechanisms are designed to fit within the secure IP-based Global Information Grid, and will help move future tactical networks for the Navy to an almost drop-free regime, resulting in a significantly enhanced user experience.
