This study focuses on TCP-Friendly rate control (TFRC), which is defined by IETF in RFC 5348 as and Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP), which is defined by IETF in RFC 4960 as a new transport protocol. TFRC feature as fairness has attracted real time application and SCTP features also as multi-homing and multi-streaming, has attracted multimedia applications to use it as their transport protocol instead of TCP and UDP. However, the challenge faced by TFRC that is using additive increase to adjust the sending rate during periods with no congestion. This leads to short term congestion that can degrade the quality of voice applications. SCTP faced the challenge in a best-effort network. In this study, a comprehensive performance evaluation between TFRC and SCTP has been carried out. The objectives of this research are to measure the performance of both TFRC and SCTP in MANET in terms of throughput, delay and packet loss that has TFRC and SCTP with UDP traffic some times and some experiments without UDP and the nodes is in mobility positions. All experiments conducted in this research were obtained through network simulation tools using NS-2. It is expected that this study is useful for researchers in improving both TFRC and SCTP.
