	att_abstract={{In this paper, we propose and study a novel transport protocol that can effectively utilize available bandwidth and diversity gains provided by heterogeneous, highly lossy paths. Our Multi-Path LOss-tolerant Transport (MPLOT) protocol can be used to provide significant gains in the goodput of wireless mesh networks, subject to bursty, correlated losses with average rates as high as 50%, and random outage events. MPLOT makes intelligent use of erasure codes to guard against packets losses, and a Hybrid-ARQ/FEC scheme to reduce packet recovery latency, where the redundancy is adaptively provisioned into both proactive and reactive FECs. MPLOT uses dynamic packet mapping based on current path characteristics, and does not require packets to be delivered in sequence to ensure reliability. We present a theoretical analysis of the diversity gain that can be obtained from the available lossy paths and show that MPLOT makes full use of the diversity gain through simulations, under a variety of test scenarios. We also show that MPLOT co-exists fairly with traditional singlepath protocols like TCP-SACK. }},
