Underwater Acoustic wireless communication becomes a popular research area for transmitting and receiving data between the communicators in the ocean environment. High accuracy in data communication can be succeeded by proficient modeling of carrier sense multiple access and time division access. For such innovations, the system has to proceed with an appropriate framework to make constant data traffic and limitations on start to finish data traffic delays. There are two major wireless communication multiple access methods that can be utilized in real-time underwater networks. One of the multiple access schemes is TDMA and another one is CSMA/CA. This paper concentrated on the modeling of TDMA and CSMA/CA also proposes the comparison of delay (end-end) of both multiple access protocols. The results using SNC to obtain delay bounds and are associated with simulation. The results show TDMA has a lesser efficiency than CSMA/CA in the acoustic environment.
