The Stream Control Transmission Protocol has many features such as multi-streaming and multi-homing, and based on these features that enable to deal with multimedia applications. Therefore, it has become possible to use the SCTP as the transport layer protocol instead of other protocols such as TCP and UDP. Many studies on SCTP have been carried out under different environments in order to measure its performance under various conditions, but it has faced a lot of challenges, especially in the upper layer. The aim of this study is to measure and analysis the performance of throughput, jitter and delay of both SCTP and TCP. Where we prove this goal by compares the results of performance of both the SCTP and TCP over a Wired Network under similar conditions that have SCTP with UDP traffic to reach the desired results. It is expected that the results are obtained will be useful for researchers who want to improve SCTP in the future. It will be conducting all experiments of this research through a network simulation tool NS2.
