In a MANET environment, communication links are unstable due to various reasons. Error rate is higher and bandwidth is smaller than fixed networks. Running conventional TCP protocol over MANET will suffer from severe performance degradation. To handle a packet loss, conventional TCP retransmits the lost packet from its source. However, when error rate is high, it may have to take several retransmissions to deliver a packet to its destination successfully. Considering that most applications on a… CONTINUE READING
