This Internet Draft discusses Reliable UDP (RUDP). RUDP is a simple packet based transport protocol. RUDP is based on RFCs 1151 and 908 - Reliable Data Protocol. RUDP is layered on the UDP/IP Protocols and provides reliable in-order delivery (up to a maximum number of retransmissions) for virtual connections. RUDP has a very flexible design that would make it suitable for a variety of transport uses. One such use would be to transport telecommunication signaling protocols.
