SCTP Performance Improvement Based on Adaptive Retransmission Time-Out Adjustment
MetadataShow full metadata
The Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) was designed to combat certain types of faults which commonly occur in IP networks. The algorithm used in SCTP that estimates the Round Trip Time (RTT) between nodes are critical to the effectiveness of the transport protocol. This work focuses in the area of improving SCTP's performance via fine tuning Retransmission Time-Out (RTO) algorithm that estimates the time between nodes.
