In this paper, we will study the interactions between medium access control (MAC) and Transfer Control Protocol (TCP) protocols. These interactions will be done with some of the IETF standardised reactive (AODV, DSR) and proactive (DSDV) routing protocols under varying network conditions such as load and mobility. We will suggest an improvement to these interactions for a better MANET performance. We especially interest to the TCP performance parameters like the sending rate of the TCP packets… 

Enhancing TCP Performance in Mobile Ad Hoc Network Using Explicit Link Failure Notification (ELFN)

TLDR
The simulation results indicate that the optimized frame transmission model can reflect the degree of congestion of Ad hoc network accurately, and the segmented back-off algorithm makes the average throughput of Ad ad hoc network increases by 30% on the basis of IEEE802.11 standard wireless protocols.

EVALUATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF ACK FILTERING AND ACK CONGESTION CONTROL IN MITIGATING THE EFFECTS OF BANDWIDTH ASYMMETRY

TLDR
This project studies the effectiveness of ACK Filtering and ACK Congestion Control techniques in mitigating the effects of bandwidth asymmetry in TCP/IP networks and provides suggestions to overcome the problems associated with these techniques.

IMPROVING THE PERFORMANCE OF DYNAMIC SOURCE ROUTING PROTOCOL BY OPTIMIZATION OF NEURAL NETWORKS

TLDR
In this work a neural network has been further optimized to improve its accuracy by varying the number of layers in it and its effectiveness has been improved to make the detection of intrusion more accurate.

Distinction between data losses for better communications in iot

TLDR
The proposed IC-IoT (Improving Communication for IoT) improves the QoS parameters for the IoT applications mainly to the rate of packets delivery, the network lifetime and the evolution of the consumed energy.

Efficient medium access protocol for Internet of things applications

TLDR
An improvement called MAC protocol with distinction between data losses (MAC‐DL), which consists mainly to consider the different sources of frame losses in the functioning of the backoff algorithm, which improved significantly the quality of service and the energy efficient for typical IoT scenarios.

Incidence of the improvement of the transport: MAC protocols interactions on MANET performance

TLDR
This paper studies the interactions between MAC protocol and transport protocols notably TCP (Transfer Control Protocol) protocol and suggests an improvement of these interactions for a better QoS (Quality of service) in MANET.

On the interaction of TCP and Routing Protocols in MANETs

TLDR
The results of the analysis on three popular routing protocols, namely AODV, DSR and OLSR, produces insight into the different behavioural patterns of TCP during this event, and highlights the mechanisms of each routing protocol that affect it.

MAC-layer Adaptation to Improve TCP Flow Performance in 802.11 Wireless Networks

TLDR
This study shows the interest, in case of signal failure, to adapt one of the MAC parameters, the retry limit (RL), to reduce the drop in performance due to the inappropriate triggering of TCP congestion control mechanisms.

TULIP: A link-level protocol for improving TCP over wireless links

We present the transport unaware link improvement protocol (TULIP), which dramatically improves the performance of TCP over lossy wireless links, without competing with or modifying the transport- or

A survey of TCP over ad hoc networks

TLDR
How TCP can be affected by mobility and lower-layer protocols is shown and the main proposals that are intended to adapting TCP to mobile and static ad hoc environments are surveyed.

Interactions between TCP and the IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol

TLDR
The interactions between the TCP and 802.11b MAC protocols are studied, and the causes of performance degradation when TCP is used over 802.

TCP performance in wireless multi-hop networks

TLDR
It is argued that link level protection, backoff policy and selective queue scheduling are critical elements for efficient and fair operation of ad-hoc networks under TCP.

Analysis of TCP Performance over Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

TLDR
A new metric, expected throughput, is introduced for the comparison of throughput in multi-hop networks, and this metric is used to show how the use of explicit link failure notification (ELFN) techniques can significantly improve TCP performance.

Improving Transport Layer Performance in Multihop Ad Hoc Networks by Exploiting MAC Layer Information

TLDR

A Cross Layer Solution to Address TCP Intra-flow Performance Degradation in Multihop Ad hoc Networks

TLDR
The paper proposes a novel cross layer solution called “TCP Contention Control” that dynamically adjusts the amount of outstanding data in the network based on the level of contention experienced by packets as well as the throughput achieved by connections.
