UDP/IP - Hosting Wikipedia





UDP ( User Datagram Protocol ) is one of the most popular transport protocols. In comparison to TCP it is much faster, however less reliable.

The special features of this protocol:

  • it does not make sure all packets are in proper order and delivered
  • UDP is not establishing connection before starting or receiving the transmission.

The common  application of UDP/IP is audio/video streaming – in this case the need of keeping the transmission real-time outweighs the potential risks of packets loss.
