Stream Control Transmission Protocol Endpoint (SCTP)
Definition - What does Stream Control Transmission Protocol Endpoint (SCTP) mean?
The Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) endpoint is an SCTP designated packet sender or receiver with eligible combined and unique transport addresses. SCTP endpoint addresses may not be used by other SCTP endpoints.
SCTP enables single endpoint capability for multiple Internet Protocol (IP) addresses known as multi-homing. This provides better data survivability during network failure.
SCTP multi-homing is only used for redundancy.
