Abstract-- The Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP)
has recently been standardized as a new transport layer protocol
in the IP protocol suite. In addition to the core features of TCP,
SCTP incorporates a number of advanced and unique features
which are not available in TCP. The objective of this paper is to
investigate the suitability of SCTP for data communications over
satellite links. We describe SCTP features that allow SCTP to bet-
ter utilize the bandwidth of satellite networks, while at the same
time avoiding congestion collapse in a shared network. Finally, we
