Performance Comparison of Mobile Ad Hoc Network Routing Protocol and Transmission Control Protocol

Akinwole A. K., Emuoyibofarhe O. J.


In this work the Performance Comparison of Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) Routing Protocols and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) was investigated in order to evaluate the performance of Routing Protocols (AODV, DSR and TORA) and TCP (Tahoe, Reno and New Reno). The Model that represented the hypothetical network was developed and simulated using OMNet++ 4.1.

The three Routing protocols were tested upon each of the three variants of Transmission Control Protocol. End to end throughput was the performance parameter (metric) used for the evaluation of Routing protocols and TCP performance.
