Definitions for "User Datagram Protocol"
A communication protocol that provides a generally unreliable, but efficient communications path over an IP network.
A connectionless and therefore inherently unreliable data protocol (RFC 768) where data is sent but not acknowledged. No guarantee of delivery is defined in the UDP protocol; no attempt to recover from data loss is performed. See also IP family.
UDP is a simple transport level protocol defined in RFC 768 for nonreliably passing datagrams across the Internet
