SCTP is a transport protocol targeted for telephony signaling traffic. Although SCTP from its inception supported multihoming, it has until now not supported concurrent mul- tipath transfer. However, this is about to change: Currently a standard for concurrent multipath transfer is underway. Since it is unclear whether concurrent multipath transfer could reduce transmission latency, this paper evaluates two algorithms for scheduling signaling traffic for transmission. We find that the mechanisms may provide good performance and to some extent enables for service differentiation. Still, the results indicate that unpredictable traffic require dynamic scheduling.
