SCTP

In this article we will discuss SCTP, will make brief discussion on SCTP, last article we discuss about TCP.

SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol) is a protocol for transmitting multiple streams of data at the same time between two end points that have established a connection in a network.

The Stream Control Transmission Protocol is a computer networking communications protocol which operates at the transport layer and serves a role similar to the popular protocols TCP and UDP. It is standardized by IETF in RFC 4960.

Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) is a transport-layer protocol that can be used on top of IP networks for end-to-end communications. SCTP is an IETF standard developed by the Transport Area Working Group (tsvwg).

Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) is a relatively new transport layer in the IP Protocol Stack. In an LTE network, SCTP is used to provide guaranteed message delivery between the MME and eNodeB. Data from multiple streams can be sent in a single SCTP message as chunks.

Multihoming is the ability of an SCTP association to support multiple IP paths to its peer endpoint. The benefit of multihoming associations is that it makes the association more fault-tolerant against physical network failures and other issues on the interfaces.
