This memo describes an extension to the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) [RFC2960] to provide unreliable data transfer services. The benefits of this extension includes unified congestion control over reliable and unreliable data traffics, single association for multi-type content data services, link level fault tolerance for unreliable data applications, unreliable data stream multiplexing, etc.
