Abstract--Current web applications use HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol) over TCP (Transmission Control
 

Summary: Abstract-- Current web applications use HTTP (Hyper Text
Transfer Protocol) over TCP (Transmission Control
Protocol) to retrieve objects over the Internet. SCTP
(Stream Control Transmission Protocol) is a recently
proposed transport protocol with very similar congestion
control mechanisms as TCP, except the initial congestion
window during the slow start phase. In this paper, we
present an analytical model of object transfer latency
during the slow start phase for HTTP over SCTP and
compare with the latency of HTTP over TCP. Validation of
the model using experimental results, show that the average
object transfer latency for HTTP over SCTP during the
slow start phase is less than that for HTTP over TCP by
11%.
Index Terms--SCTP, transfer latency, slow start, congestion
control.
