Transport protocols have been developed at first for terrestrial networks, but they are also used on communication satellite networks which have specific characteristics such as low bandwidth, QoS architecture and large latency. TCP and SCTP have been intensively studied in several circumstances, recommendations have been provided and results obtained. We are going to use the research done in order to study SCTP and TCP behavior on a satellite network implementing QoS architecture. Our intentions are to explain and predict the behavior of the transport protocols on such networks. The settings of these transport protocols will be studied in order to prove how they can be both improved on a satellite network with a QoS architecture.
