First of all, welcome to the world of protocols !
TCP is OK but what is this SCTP ?
Simply put, a new transport layer (remember OSI model !), just like TCP but has many advantage specifically made for the telecom industry.
Key features include
1. Message framing
2. Multihoming and,
3. Multi streaming.
Now, do we really need a new transport layer protocol when people are happy using TCP as a standard and most stable protocol on the earth? Fortunately or unfortunately, YES !
