Abstract In a MANET, there is no need to deploy any infrastructure to make nodes to communicate with each other. MANETs have unique characteristics that complicate congestion control. The standard TCP congestion control mechanism is not able to handle the special properties of a shared wireless multi-hop channel well. The frequent changes of the network topology and the shared nature of the wireless channel pose significant challenges. Therefore, various congestion control approaches for MANETs have been proposed. This paper discusses TCP enhancements for wireless links. It analyzes design challenges for an enhanced transport protocol, and presents congestion control schemes for MANETs.

Mobile Adhoc network is a network, which has advances of dynamic topology, mobility of nodes and congestion control. It is also an infrastructure less networks. This paper “Congestion control and packet Recovery for cross layer approach” is proposed. Traffic of packets occurred due to congestion and contention problems are reduced in datalink layer and transport layer. Also ensuring that, the superior performance of congestion is a challenging model due to changes in link layer contentions, topo...

Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) provides connection oriented and reliable transport layer services. Mobile Adhoc Networks (MANETs) are autonomous and infrastructure less wireless networks. A significant amount of performance degradation is found when TCP is used with the MANETs as compared to the wired networks. TCP suits well with the wired networks, where majority of the packet losses are due to network congestion. MANETs have various other issues like transmission errors, dynamic topologi...

The characteristics of Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) like error and reordering degrades the performance of TCP-based applications. Among the many proposals to reduce the impact of non-congestion events, TCP-NCE has been designed as the unified solution to discriminate between non-congestion and congestion events, and to respond to the events. Our initial analysis on TCP-NCE and other schemes (TCP-DCR and SACK-TCP) showed that the existing schemes including TCP-NCE fail to improve end-to-end perf...

Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANET) is made up of mobile devices which form an infrastructure-less network. In MANET, the devices can change its location and configure itself at any time. Hence, there is a possibility for the network to be prone to abnormal network events due to certain factors like error in the links, overflow in the buffers, layers, and so forth. So, in this paper, a cross-layer based congestion detection and routing protocol is proposed using Fuzzy logic. In this protocol, wheneve...

In the past, several authors have expressed their concerns over the poor congestion control in mobile wireless ad-hoc networks using traditional reference layer model. Many solutions were proposed to handle growing traffic and congestion in the network, using link layer information. Existing solutions have shown difficulties in dealing with congestion with varying packets drop. Moreover, ensuring the superior performance of congestion control schemes with traditional referenced layer model is a ...

In mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), the packet loss can be caused either by link failure or by node failure. Moreover, the techniques for selecting the bypass route and avoiding congestion in the bypass route are rarely handled. To overcome these, in this paper, we propose an adaptive reliable and congestion control routing protocol to resolve congestion and route errors using bypass route selection in MANETs. The multiple paths are constructed. Among which, the shortest paths are found for effi...

Maximum real time solicitations require Quality of Service (QoS) during data communication. Therefore many routing protocols for Mobile Adhoc Network (MANET) associating Real Time Applications have been established that uses improved Real time structure for optimization of delay and energy efficiency, basic objective being great deployment of resource in resource limited environment. Congestion Control is another important issue while directing towards QoS achievement specifically with highly tr...

A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a collection of wireless mobile nodes that can communicate without a central controller or fixed infrastructure. Due to node mobility, designing a routing protocol to provide an efficient and suitable method to route the data with less energy consumption, packet drop and to prolong the network lifetime has become a challenging issue in MANETs. In MANETs, reducing energy consumption and packet loss involves congestion control and load balancing techniques. Thus,...

The capability of quality-of-service (QoS) provisioning is of particular importance for multi-hop wireless networks when the real-time applications boost in current days. The scheduling and delivery of data packets in a deficient method may probably cause network congestion, which will in turn decrease the capability of QoS provisioning in the network. To this end, we propose a joint QoS provisioning and congestion control scheme for multi-hop wireless network in this paper based on our previous...

Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) is a wireless infrastructure less network in which nodes communicates with each other by establishing temporary network. One of the most important issues in the MANET is the congestion. It leads to the network performance degradation. In order to transmit real time data reliably in MANET, TCP can be used. But the congestion control techniques used by the TCP is inadequate for such networks because of node mobility and dynamic topology. Also the routing protocols des...

Abstract Providing interactive video-on-demand streaming over mobile ad hoc networks is still a challenge. Mobile nodes are dynamically and arbitrarily located in such a manner that interconnections between them change on a continual basis, thereby making timely video-delivery strenuous to achieve. To help to tackle this adversity, this paper proposes two BitTorrent-like algorithms. Their design concept lies in the combination of different criteria to wisely (i) select the nodes which may reques...
A decentralized sort of network that can allow the nodes to communicate with them lacking any central controller is Wireless Ad hoc Networks (WANET). Network Congestions can befall on account of nodes' restricted Bandwidth (BW) together with dynamic topology. Network Congestions brings about data loss as it makes the Data Packets (DP) be dropped on the network. Therefore, in order to lessen Network Congestions, it is necessary to model Congestion Control (CC) systems aimed at the WANET. Thus, th...

Drastic changes in network topology of Flying Ad Hoc Networks (FANETs) result in the instability of the single-hop delay and link status accordingly. Therefore, it is difficult to implement the congestion control with delay-sensitive traffic according to the instantaneous link status. To solve the above difficulty effectively, we formulate the delay-aware congestion control as a network utility maximization, which considers the link capacity and end-to-end delay as constraints. Next, we combine ...

Networking is made out of remote mobile nodes; these nodes progressively structure a network with no centralized controller. Due to this dynamic nature, the nodes act as routers to keep up routing and sending data bundles. Be that as it may, the mobile nodes do not have changeless power supply and need to depend on batteries; in this way, they consume more energy and lessen network lifetime. The proposed work considers the issue of energy consumption in MANET, and it is overwhelmed by the optimi...

In mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), obstacle happens owing to the loss of packet, which could be effectively minimized by linking congestion control schemes (comprising of routing methods) and control inflow at the network layer. Here, we propose a link matrix technique for MANETs that minimizes congestion links based on the range before the distortion level of each selected transmission node to get better system ability. The effectiveness of the chosen traffic matrix technique is analyzed by co...
