SCTP is a newly developed transport protocol tailored for signaling transport. Whereas in theory SCTP is supposed to achieve a much better performance than TCP and UDP, at present there are no experimental results showing SCTP's real benefits. This article analyzes SCTP's strengths and weaknesses and provides simulation results. We implemented SIP on top of UDP, TCP, and SCTP in the network simulator and compared the three transport protocols under different network conditions.
