Abstract--Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP)
is a new transport layer protocol which can be deployed in
the Internet along with TCP. In this paper, we investigate
the performance issues that arise when SCTP and TCP are
used in the same satellite network. We evaluate performance
through measurement of throughput, and also fairness of use
of networks resources by the two protocols. We observed
