Transport protocol in mobile devices of HCI (human-computer interaction) operates at wired and wireless heterogeneous network. it is to conquer the poor Wireless environment and a constraint mobility that have been developed from reactive congestion control schemes to proactive congestion control schemes suitable for the wired, wireless networks environment. in spite of, recently proposed that TCP’s proactive congestion control schemes could not reflect network status in detail and there are a limit to support for new mobile services of HCI users. In this paper, we outlines open issues and problems laying stress on TCP-Jersey’s available bandwidth estimators in order to reduce using rate adjustment metrics to packet loss and congestion loss. also, we presented the guideline of selecting more adequate metrics for improve wireless TCP performance of mobile HCI.
