Taxonomy and Survey of Retransmission Policies for Multipath Transport SCTP Protocol

Abdul Ridha H. Abass, Azizol Abdullah, Mohamed Othman, and Zurina Mohd Hanapi
Abstract—In this paper we present a taxonomy for retransmission policies that perform error recovery to offer completely reliable or partial reliable services for Multi Path Transport SCTP and quasi-SCTP. The taxonomy is drawn from a survey and an extensive analysis of the state of the art research works on retransmission policies for Multi Path Transport SCTP protocol. The taxonomy comprises two classification schemes: one that classifies retransmission policies with respect to retransmission path designation and one that classifies them with respect to their decision base scheme to select retransmission path which is the most salient feature of the retransmission policies for protocols that supports Multi Homing at the Transport layer. The sole purpose of our taxonomy is to gain valuable insights into these retransmission policies and thereby suggest baseline for future research. Based on our taxonomy, a survey is made of existing retransmission policies. The survey shows how retransmission policies are categorized according to our taxonomy, and exemplifies the majority of retransmission policies detailed in our taxonomy.

Index Terms—Taxonomy, survey, retransmission policy, multipath, SCTP.
