UDP, TCP and now… SCTP

Recently I was reading an article about ‘Stream Control Transmission Protocol’. This procotol acts on the same layer as TCP/UDP (layer 4).

I found this new protocol very interessting and are planning to implement this on my homenetwork and play around with it…

Here a small Comparison chart between TCP, UDP and SCTP

More information can be found at the SCTP WikiPedia page.
