In this paper, we propose an improvement of Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) protocol performance in MANET by exploiting the backoff algorithm of Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol. This improvement is IB-MAC (Improvement of Backoff algorithm of MAC protocol), it propose a new backoff algorithm based on a dynamic adaptation of its maximal limit according to the number of nodes and their mobility. The evaluation of our IB-MAC solution and the study of its incidences on TCP performance are… CONTINUE READING

Key Quantitative Results

  • The technique improved the TCP performance by up to 60% and by about 10% even when the network load was very high.
