Transport protocols for Wireless Sensor Networks are used to eliminate congestion and reduce packet loss, to provide fairness in bandwidth allocation, and to guarantee end-to-end reliability. The transport protocols in WSN should support Congestion control, Reliable data delivery, Energy efficiency. The researchers working in this area have to compare the performance of the new protocol with the existing protocols to prove that new protocol is better. In this article we provide review technical characteristics of existing transport protocol design in WSNs and we then compared them.
