We provide an overview of wireless packet data networks and emphasize the importance of end-to-end performance metrics to support user-perceived quality of service guarantees. The following topics are addressed in the tutorial to illustrate various performance-enhancing control mechanisms in wireless packet data networks:

1. Overview of wireless data networks

2. Overview of end-to-end performance issues

3. Opportunistic scheduling algorithms

4. Interactions between scheduling algorithms and TCP

5. TCP-level performance optimizations

6. Quality of service based admission control
