An Empirical Study on Variants of TCP Over AODV Routing Protocol in MANET
Source: George Mason University
The cardinal concept of TCP development was to carry data within the network where network congestion plays a vital role to cause packet loss. On the other hand, there are several other reasons to lose packets in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks due to fading, interfaces, multi-path routing, malicious node, and black hole. Along with throughput, fairness of TCP protocols is important to establish a good communication. In this paper, an empirical study has been done by simulation and analysis of TCP variations under AODV routing protocol. In the authors' simulation, they studied multiple variations of TCP, such as Reno, New-Reno, Vegas, and Tahoe.
