Performance Evaluation Of Tcp Over Wireless Sensor Network Using Ns-3
Abstract- Wireless sensor networks are composed of large numbers up to thousands of tiny radio-equipped sensors. Every
sensor has a small microprocessor with enough power to allow the sensors to autonomously form networks through which
sensor information is gathered. It makes it possible to monitor places like nuclear disaster areas or volcano craters without
requiring humans to be immediately present. Bringing TCP/IP to wireless sensor networks is a challenging task, how- ever.
First, because of their limited physical size and low cost, sensors are severely constrained in terms of memory and processing
power. Traditionally, these constraints have been considered too limiting for a sensor to be able to use the TCP/IP protocols.
In this project we are trying to study the performance of TCP over WSN considering energy, throughput, delay.
