Abstract

This Internet Draft discusses a new protocol, namely the Multi-network Datagram Transmission Protocol (MDTP), that is intended to provide fault-tolerant reliable data transfer between communicating entities over IP networks [1]. MDTP is proposed as an application-level protocol that is designed to support redundant networks and transparent fault management. MDTP also provides timing control and configuration flexibilities to meet the stringent timing requirements often found in telephony signaling protocols. The motivation of developing MDTP is to support Internet-based high reliability applications such as signaling and call control for Internet telephony.
