Countless researchers have put efforts to conduct researches about the performance of the traditional Transport Control Protocols (TCP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP). Recently new transport protocol had been designed called Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP). In this paper, the authors will focus to study the effect of Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANET) on these two transport protocols SCTP and UDP and find out which one performs better over MANET. The transport protocol SCTP has more services and features compare to the traditional transport protocol. They also present some literatures on SCTP and UDP performance over MANET.
