The growing availability of different wireless access technologies like WiFi 802.11, cellular broadband EV-DO, and the soon to be deployed WiMax 802.16, provide the opportunity for users to carry multiple radio types and potentially benefit from better connectivity and reliability. The multi-homing features of the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) appear to be key enablers for improving mobile communications for such multi-radio equipped users. However, satisfactory performance of SCTP in a mobile wireless environment depends heavily on the settings of configurable protocol parameters and questions remain whether multi-homing may actually perform worse than single-homing in some circumstances.
