The behavior of wireless links in third generation wireless data systems based on cdma2000 standard have profound impacts on the performance of transport layer protocols. This is due to greater variations in round trip times(RTTs) experienced by the TCP agents. In this work we present an exhaustive study of the nature and impacts of the variable delays on wireless links caused due to error recovery through link-layer retransmissions. We identify the conditions under which sharp delay variations and residual errors occur in presence of link layer recovery mechanisms and how they degrade the system performance and impact the TCP behavior.
