A novel active queue management(AQM) scheme is proposed to deal with the performance degradation of TCP in wireless scenario. One of the key sources causing performance degradation is the high bit error rate(BER), which is an intrinsic link characteristic of wireless network. A high-gain observer is constructed to estimate the effect of bit error of source data. With the estimated BER, the drop probability of queuing packets can be adapted to time-varying link conditions and network loads so that it reduces the queue oscillation and maintains good throughput. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme outperforms RED(Random Early Detection) algorithm with strong robustness to time-varying scenarios of wireless networks.
