Simulation Based Analysis of TCP Variants Over MANET Routing Protocols Using NS2

Traditional Transport Layer Protocol Transport Control Protocol (TCP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) which perform well on wired networks, but it degrades its performance in case of ad-hoc wireless networks due to the existing problems associated such as misinterpretation of packet loss, frequent path breaks, effect of path length, misinterpretation of congestion windows, asymmetric link behavior, uni-directional path, multipath routing and the use of sliding-window-based transmission. So, to provide reliable data communication support over MANET's, various TCP variants i.e. basically enhancement of base TCP protocols has been proposed.
