Performance of SCTP through switch to second path

Today the Internet plays an important role in our everyday life. Users hope that the network is always speedy enough to help them access the Internet without any delay. But the real situation is far from the ideal case. Due to increase the network traffic for multi-homing. The Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) can migrate to secondary paths when primary path becomes unavailable, through standard path failure detection strategy managing, but the matter of fact the standard SCTP Path Management has a delay so does not mark path inactive as soon as failure is detected, due to parameters values related to standard path failure detection strategy such as α, β and Path.Max.Retrans (PMR), these parameters have a major impact on the failover performance. For this reason we propose a method which requires alternation on current standard parameters, the new enhancement mark path failure detection strategy managing, in short time SCTP switches to secondary path when failure path detected. Therefore, we can achieve high performance, in throughput through proposed method, by using tools of OMNet++ simulation and finally will compare the performance of the SCTP, between the proposed method and default mechanism.
