In this work, we propose a new Resource Allocation Protocol to meet Quality of Service (QoS) parameters of Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) based on mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET). Dynamic slot assignment method for Frequency Hopping (FH) based Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) environment is proposed. Control slots are allocated to each node to take care of exposed and hidden node problems. The slot allocation protocol is designed for the performance optimization of TCP/IP data. The proposed protocol is implemented on a set up using V/UHF radios and tested for performance of TCP/IP communication for various services. Implementation results clearly show the improvement in the data rate and jitter.
