Abstract

Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is an application layer signalling protocol used in the IP-based UMTS network for establishing multimedia sessions. With a satellite component identified to play an integral role in UNITS, there is a need to support SIP-based session establishment over Satellite-UMTS (SUNITS) as well. Due to the inherent characteristics of SIP, the transport of SIP over an unreliable wireless link with a larger propagation delay is inefficient. To improve the session setup performance, a link layer retransmission based on the Radio Link Control acknowledgement mode (RLC-AM) mechanisms is utilised. However the current UMTS RLC-AM procedure is found to cause undesirable redundant retransmission when applied over the satellite. As such, this paper proposes an enhancement to the RLC protocol through a timer-based retransmission scheme. Simulation results reveal that not only the system capacity can be improved through this redundant retransmission avoidance scheme, but also better system performances in terms of session setup delay and failure are gained.
