Congestion control, managing reliable data transmission between a source and destination, is a major issue in all kinds of networks. In case of structured networks the presently available algorithms provide satisfactory performance, where as the performance is inferior with high density Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), due to the underlying techniques. In this paper it is attempted to identify the most suitable transport protocol among the selected available protocols, viz. DCCP TCP Like Congestion Control (DCCP-TCP Like) and DCCP TCP Friendly Congestion Control (DCCP-TFRC), by estimating their performance with respect to certain suitable metrics.
