Mobile IP is the IETF-proposed standard to offer seamless mobile computing. A new transport layer protocol, called stream control transmission protocol (SCTP), has recently been accepted by IETF as a proposed standard to address a number of TCP limitations. Most of the previous research on end-to-end throughput over Mobile IP has been carried out on TCP-Reno. Both TCP and SCTP can use selective acknowledgment (SACK) for error recovery. The effect of SCTP on the improvement of throughput during… 

Performance evaluation during handover in WLAN network with different transport protocol variants

The performance analysis was done over mobile-IP network environment that enables to measure the several performance metrics such as throughput, packet delay and the number of sent and loss packets.

Improving the performance of SCTP Transport Protocol over wireless networks

The ideas is to extend the SCTP with a process of determining an optimal number prior to the association establishing, and the experiment results of simulation using NS2 have shown the modified S CTP is feasible and also demonstrated the modifiedSCTP’s superiority of performance over TCP and UDP over the wireless networks.

Evaluation of SCTP for space networks

The objective of this article is to investigate the suitability of SCTP for data communications over satellite networks and focus on the advanced features of S CTP that enhance its performance in satellite networks.

Transport Layer Design in Mobile Wireless Networks

In this chapter, the transport layer design issues in a mobile wireless networks are discussed and the impact of these issues and the proposed schemes to improve the performance of TCP are explained.

Impact of retransmission mechanisms on the performance of SCTP and TCP

It is found that the performance of SCTP is higher than that of TCP for a range of wireless error probabilities, and it is shown that differences in the retransmission mechanisms of the two protocols leads to the better performance ofSCTP.

SCTP: A Proposed Standard for Robust Internet Data Transport

The stream control transmission protocol is an evolving general purpose Internet transport protocol designed to bridge the gap between TCP and UDP, offering new delivery options that are particularly desirable for telephony signaling and multimedia applications.

Improving Internet Mobility: the Tcp-to-sctp Translation Layer

The design of the current Internet infrastructure is based on unicast point-to-point communications between fixed hosts, where IP addressing is assumed to satisfy the need of locating a single fixed host by a single IP address.


The architecture of Seamless IP diversity-based Generalized Mobility Architecture (SIGMA) a new mobility management scheme designed to solve many of the drawbacks of Mobile IP, including requirement for changes in infrastructure.


The survivability and security of SIGMA is evaluated and shown that SIGMA has a higher survivability than Mobile IP - thanks to its centralized location management scheme.

Performance of SCTP in Wi-Fi and WiMAX networks with multi-homed mobiles

This paper provides an exhaustive performance analysis by simulation of the SCTP transfer protocol in WiMAX and Wi-Fi networks. We provide also a comparison of SCTP with both transfer protocols UDP



SCTP: New Transport Protocol for TCP/IP

The IETF now embraces SCTP as a general-purpose transport layer protocol, joining TCP and UDP above the IP layer.

Adaptation of transport protocols for an IP-micromobility scheme

The results show that the number of UDP packets lost is reduced when using MMP instead of mobile IP in a micromobility environment and that TCP provides better throughput performance for a traditional scheme like Tahoe TCP when it is adapted to the conditions of the network.

Improving TCP handoff performance in Mobile IP based networks

Evaluation of SCTP Multistreaming over Satellite Links

It is shown that multistreaming results in higher goodput than single streams when the receiver buffer is constrained as in the case of wireless handheld devices and reduced buffer requirements at the receiver in the presence of losses in the satellite network.

To enhance TCP performance in cellular networks, the idea of active-mobile-host to constrain the negative effect of handoff on TCP throughput in a minimized range is adopted.

SCTP in battlefield networks

SCTP provides features for multi-homing that may be helpful in high-mobility environments and additional security against denial-of-service attacks based on SYN flooding, and allows multiple streams of messages within a single connection.

Simulation-based comparisons of Tahoe, Reno and SACK TCP

The congestion control algorithms in the simulated implementation of SACK TCP are described and it is shown that while selective acknowledgments are not required to solve Reno TCP's performance problems when multiple packets are dropped, the absence of selective acknowledgements does impose limits to TCP's ultimate performance.

Stream control transmission protocol (SCTP): a reference guide

This book provides useful perspective on design rationale and highlights SCTP's improvements over TCP in the areas of security and reliability, and demonstrates how to take full advantage of the protocol to make IP-based communications more reliable and robust.
