A New High-Performance Data Transfer Using SCTP
Source: NAMSEOUL UNIVERSITY
SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol) is a new IETF transport protocol over the IP network. Transport protocol is responsible for reliable delivery of a message form a host to another host. The authors proposed and implemented an efficient file transfer system using the SCTP multiple file transfer and modified STCP congestion control mechanism to guarantees a stable data transfer with multi-streaming and to solve the problems such as server overloading due to multiple connection and the HOL (Head Of Line) blocking that the existing TCP-based file transfer. The result shows that proposed system reduces transmission latency for huge data and improves the performance.
