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.
