SCTP (stream control transmission protocol) is a general-purpose transport protocol for IP network data communications. This paper examines methods of guaranteeing multi-streaming management and fairness among streams within SCTP associations. We investigated an important aspect of fairness adjustment between streams of SCTP, the underlying congestion control mechanism. In this paper, we propose that separated congestion control with a fairness compensation module is more efficient than the standard SCTP. Proposed SCTP-SCF overcomes existing problems in the traditional SCTP when a multi-streaming feature is used.
