Abstract
Reliable in-order multi-path data transfer under asymmetric heterogeneous network conditions has known problems related to receiver's buffer blocking, caused by out of order packet arrival. Consequently, the aggregate capacity from multiple paths, which theoretically should be available to and achievable by the multi-path transport protocol, is practically severely underutilized. Several mitigation techniques have been proposed to address this issue mostly by using various packet retransmission schemes, load-balancing and bandwidth-estimation based mechanisms. In comparison to the existing reactive techniques for buffer block mitigation, we propose a novel and y...
