Stream Control Transmission Protocol. An alternative protocol to TCP. SCTP contains multiple transmission paths and is designed to facilitate SS7 signaling over TCP/IP, supporting multiple IP addresses from the same host and treating the data streams from these addresses as one session. It does not require a strict order of delivery like TCP. If one data stream fails, the other streams are allowed to continue.
See streams control transport protocol.
SCTP is the Stream Control Transmission Protocol created for transmitting SS7 messages over the IP network. Since the IP network does not guarantee the delivery of messages through the network, nor provides for redundant physical paths through the network, the SCTP protocol performs these functions.

Stream Control Transmission Protocol. IETF protocol that supports reliable data exchange between two endpoints.
SCTP, or Stream Control Transmission Protocol is a new transport layer protocol (2000) defined by the IETF. The protocol is defined in RFC 2960, and an introductory text is provided by RFC 3286
Stream Control Transmission Protocol. General IP transport protocol defined by the SIGTRAN working group of the IETF.
The Stream Control Transmission Protocol is a reliable transport protocol operating on top of a connectionless packet network such as IP. SCTP is designed to transport PSTN signaling messages over IP networks, but is capable of broader applications. It offers the following services to its users: Acknowledged error-free non-duplicated transfer of user data. Data fragmentation to conform to discovered path MTU size. Sequenced delivery of user messages within multiple streams, with an option for order-of-arrival delivery of individual user messages. Optional bundling of multiple-user messages into a single SCTP packet. Network-level fault tolerance through supporting of multi-homing at either or both ends of an association.
