In recent years there has been a significant increase in the availability of wireless and mobile networks capable of supporting IP communication. The diversity of these networks in terms of signal coverage and transmission capability has made it essential to employ a transparent network migration strategy which can seamlessly migrate from one network to another without a perceived degradation in quality from an end user. Significant research efforts are ongoing to investigate if SCTP, which was originally designed as a transport protocol for Signaling System 7 (SS7) data across IP networks, can support seamless network migration. As a transport layer protocol SCTP shares some of the features of TCP, as well as introducing enhancements to support network mobility.
