Abstract-- Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) is
a new transport layer protocol which is being standardized
by IETF. Multi-homing, one of the most attractive features
of SCTP, makes it competitive in high-availability and mobile
environments. In this paper, we propose an analytical model for
evaluating the performance of SCTP multi-homing. The proposed
model has been validated against and found to agree well with
simulation results.
I. INTRODUCTION
Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) is a new
transport protocol over IP networks [1]. Multihoming is one
of its new built-in features that is not available in TCP. Multi-
homed endpoints can utilize the redundancy in network, and
