With the advent of new multimedia applications the demand for in time delivery of data is increased as compared to the reliability. Usually the Transport Layer Protocols, User Datagram Protocol (UDP) and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) are used to transfer the data over the IP based network like Internet. TCP provides a reliable mechanism to transfer the data but its reliable mechanism results in increase in delay. UDP lacks in providing any acknowledgment mechanism and it does not provide any congestion control mechanism also. However the unreliable behavior of UDP results in less delay in data transfer. Now a days one of the important issues is the Quality of Service (QoS) assurance as the behavior of transport layer protocols can affect the QoS. So in order to avoid these issues some new transport layer protocols have been developed by Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Two important transport layer protocols, Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP) and Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) are used in this study. DCCP is specially designed to avoid congestion in the network. DCCP is suitable for in time delivery of data and also for its congestion control mechanism. DCCP is an unreliable transport layer protocol, as the real time applications demands for in time delivery rather than reliability. SCTP is another transport layer protocol that provides reliable data transfer. In this research work performance of SCTP, DCCP and UDP has been evaluated using MPEG-4 video over Mobile WiMAX/IEEE 802.16e. The performance of these three transport layer protocols is analyzed in terms of performance metrics like packet loss, jitter, delay and throughput. By analyzing these performance measures it is found that the performance of DCCP and SCTP is much better as compared to UDP but DCCP gives much better performance then SCTP when compared in terms of throughput and packet loss. Comparing SCTP and DCCP with UDP in terms of delay and jitter shows that UDP has less delay and jitter as compared to SCTP and DCCP, but because of less throughput and large number of packet loss, UDP can badly degrade the video quality. So, it is found that the DCCP is the most suitable transport layer protocol for transportation of MPEG-4 traffic over Mobile WiMAX/IEEE 802.16e.

Internet applications like multimedia are comprised of a large amount of data traffic, and its transmission is increasing continuously due to the growth of Internet. The quality of different applications depends on network conditions and transport protocol. Quality of services needed by today’s Internet applications cannot be fulfilled by the traditional transport protocol like transmission control protocol (TCP) therefore other transport protocols like SCTP and DCCP with advanced features were ...

ABSTRACT : Increasingly rapid development of network technology. Right now many people who take advantage of the Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) to make the process of data transmission, monitoring, tracing and others. WSN uses the battery to get the resources, but these resources are still limited. Energy efficiency is needed to conserve its resources WSN. There are several ways to make energy efficiency. One of them using MAC Protocol on OSI layer 2, for power saving. In this study, SMAC protoco...
Fourth Generation (4G) system has been used more widely than the older generations 3G and 2G. Among the reasons are that the 4G’s transfer rate is higher and it supports all multimedia functions. Besides, its’ supports for wide geographical locus makes wireless technology gets more advanced. The essential goal of 4G is to enable voice-based communication being implemented endlessly. To achieve the goal, this study tries to answer the following research questions: (1), are the old protocols suit ...

The rapid development of network technology has created a multimedia application enters the world of internet. Skype, Yahoo Messenger, Facebook and Line are some examples of applications that provides multimedia features such as free call (VoIP) and video call (video conference) in it. Most of these applications typically use UDP instead of TCP as the transport protocol. The increased of UDP traffic has threaten TCP traffic that appears issues of fairness between the two protocols. In 2006 the I...

Collaborative Virtual Environment (CVE) has become popular in the last few years, this is because CVE is designed to allow geographically distributed users to work together over the network. In CVE the state of the virtual objects is witnessing unprecedentant change. When a user performs an action in CVE, the information of the action needs to be transmitted to other users to maintain consistency in the cooperative work. TCP is the most widely used protocol in the design of CVE, and its throughp...

Collaborative Virtual Environment (CVE) is becoming popular in the last few years; this is because CVE is designed to allow geographically distributed users to work together over the network. Currently, in the development of CVE Systems, Client server architectures with multiple servers are used with TCP as update transmitting transport protocol because of its reliability. With the increasing number of collaborators, the transport protocol is inadequate to meet the system requirements in terms o...

The need to respond to congestion and channel loss over not one but two wireless links is an impediment to video streaming between one mobile user device and another via an intervening IP network. The result can be poor wireless channel utilization and interruptions to the streaming process. This paper proposes that multi-connection streaming will avoid the need for application-specific cross-layer intervention to address this problem. In considering IEEE 802.16e (mobile WiMAX), the paper demons...
