This research describes and makes an analysis of performance of Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) compared with User Datagram Protocol (UDP) using Network Simulator (NS-2). This new transport layer protocol has recently been accepted by Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) as a proposed standard to address a number of Transport Control Protocol (TCP) limitations. Here, the interaction of these two transport protocols (SCTP & UDP) has been investigated through the examination of traffic flows through a number of network topologies. SCTP has many new features that could not be found in other transport protocol such as multi-streaming and multi-homing. This performance analysis was done over mobile-IP network environment that enables to measure the several performance metrics such as packet delay, packet loss and jitter. At the end of the study, results and analysis shows that the research objective was achieved as well as comparative studies between the three transport protocols that is SCTP, UDP and TCP.
