Problem definition:  

The Performance Comparison of TCP against CBR Using Reactive and Proactive Protocols project background section makes clear that the researches and studies that already exist did not provide detailed explanation for the comparison of different sources of traffic’s performances throughout the MANETs by the routing protocol used for the simulation. Especially in this research project a MANET is designed with 200 mobile nodes and 500X500 meters of capacity area for comparing the performance of TCP traffic source over the performance of CBR traffic sources by the usage of AODV routing protocol.

                          This MS Dissertation Project Topic  is simulated using eight scenarios and the first scenario that is scenario 1 concentrates on the TCP traffic generation by the usage of FTP application using AODV routing protocol and the second scenario that is scenario 2 deals with the CBR traffic generation using the low quality voice application using the AODV routing protocol.

The third scenario that is the scenario 3 is simulated to generate the TCP traffic using the FTP application using the DSR routing protocol and the fourth scenario that is scenario 4 deals with the generation of CBR traffic using the low quality voice application using the DSR routing protocol. The fifth and sixth scenarios that are scenario 5 and scenario 6 use the OLSR routing protocol for the simulation and the scenario 5 deals with the generation of TCP traffic using the FTP application and scenario 6 concentrates on CBR traffic generation using low quality voice application.

The seventh and eighth scenarios that are scenario 7 and scenario 8 use the TORA routing protocol and the scenario 7 concentrates on TCP traffic generation using the FTP application and scenario 8 is simulated with an aim to generate CBR traffic using the low quality voice application. The results are obtained individually for all the 8 scenarios and these results are used for comparing the performance of TCP traffic over the CBR traffic in terms of some performance metrics. Those are discussed in the chapter below.
