Mobile ad hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile nodes dynamically forming a network topology without the use of any existing network infrastructure. The purpose of this paper is to compare the performance of TCP and CBR traffic in AODV Mobile Ad hoc network. When the TCP protocol is used there is a "Guaranteed delivery". The CBR service category is used for connections that transport traffic at a consistent bit rate, where there is an inherent dependence on time synchronization between the traffic source and destination. Simulation results have also shown the difference characteristics of the MANETs routing protocols where the on-demand protocols performs show the result in metrics namely Packet Delivery Fraction (PDF) and Average end-to-end delay by varying Pause time.
