The continued growth of both mobile appliances and wireless Internet technologies is bringing a new telecommunication revolution and has extended the demand of various services with mobile appliance. However, when working with wireless access devices, users have a limited amount of storage available to them due to their limited size and weight. In order to relieve this basic problem of storage capacity, we suggested iSCSI-based remote storage system for mobile appliance. However, iSCSI performance in the networks with high bit-error rates is degraded rapidly. Since iSCSI is designed to run on a TCP/IP network, it is influenced by an unnecessary reduction in link bandwidth utilization in the presence of high bit-error rates of wireless link. In this paper, we describe a new availability remote storage system for mobile appliance, called MiSC (as an abbreviation for multi-connectioned iSCSI), that avoids drastic reduction of transmission rate from TCP congestion control in wireless networks. Our experiments show that it is more powerful at handling wireless environments as compared to traditional iSCSI.
