A Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) is a temporary network; the mobile devices in an ad-hoc network are communicating through wireless links without any pre-existing infrastructure. The one major problem of this network is network congestion, it may take place at any intermediate nodes when data packets are traveling from source to destination. The major problems of congestion or high data loss, increasing End to End and retransmission packets which affects the overall network performance. The main goal of congestion control is to effectively utilize the existing network resources and maintain the network load below the capacity.
