TCP Traffic Based Performance Investigations of MANET Routing Protocols Using NS2.35
An ad-hoc network is a dynamically changing network of mobile devices that communicate without the support of a fixed structure. TCP is a connection oriented transport protocol that provides reliable, in-order delivery of data to the TCP receiver. Hence, its use over mobile ad-hoc networks is a certainty. This paper does the comprehensive investigations on routing protocols Dynamic Source Routing (DSR), Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) and Destination-Sequenced Distance-Vector (DSDV) using ns2 simulator considering TCP as transport protocol and FTP as traffic generator.
