TCP was designed for wired networks and the sender assumes that packet loss is an indicator of network congestion, but this assumption may not apply to Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs). In Mobile Ad Hoc networks, performance of the standard TCP is significantly degraded due to characteristics of MANET such as route failures due to node mobility and link… CONTINUE READING
