Abstract [en]

A Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) is a collection of mobile nodes (MN) that communicate using wireless links without support from any pre-existing infrastructure network. Packets are delivered from a source to a destination using packet forwarding capabilities of intermediate nodes. Therefore, MNs act as both end systems and routers. Mobile Ad Hoc networking has been considered as one of the most important and essential technologies that support future Pervasive Computing Scenarios. Recently, the usage of MANETs in the scope of 4G scenarios has attracted much research efforts and MANETs are seen as one way to extend coverage of hotspots in order to provide Internet connectivity to mobile users. However, TCP performance is crucial for user satisfaction but TCP is well known to suffer from low performance in wireless environments. In this paper, we evaluate several alternative TCP protocols on their suitability for Internet connected MANETs. We conclude that TCP- Vegas is a viable option as its performance is not significantly worse than those TCP variants highly specialized for MANETs but it is compatible with standard Internet protocols
