The paper addresses the TCP performance enhancing proxy techniques broadly deployed in wireless networks. Drawing on available models for TCP latency, we describe an analytical model for the latency and the buffer requirements related to the split-TCP mechanism. Although the model applicability is broad, we present and evaluate the model in the context of geostationary satellite networks, where buffering requirements may become more dramatic. Simulation results are compared with the analytical model estimates and show that the model captures the impact of various parameters affecting the dynamics of the component connections traversing the terrestrial and the satellite network.
