Adax SCTP/T and DTLS

Fast, Secure and Reliable Delivery of Valuable and Timely Data for Drones, UAVs,  IoT and M2M Networks

Adax SCTP for Real-Time Telecom (SCTP/T) was designed to meet the exacting demands of IoT, Drones, UAVs and M2M networks. Now with self-healing AI to fix networks on the fly.  Authentication chunks designated in RFC 4895 secure SCTP-based Associations from packet injection, hijacking or accidental disconnection, thus securing the millions of simultaneous associations required by today’s networks.

Steeped in the tradition of telecom and real-time reliability and robustness, with thousands of SIGTRAN installations, the Adax SCTP/T and DTLS modules meet the challenges of network growth and performance, whilst maintaining service and data delivery and thwarting malicious intent.

Adax DTLS over SCTP/T

DTLS is an optional module that delivers transport security by providing communications privacy for client/server applications to prevent eavesdropping and detect tampering or message forgery. Applications using Adax DTLS can use all the transport features provided by Adax SCTP/T and its extensions. This is especially important for Diameter where RFC 6733 states all Diameter base protocol implementations MUST support the use of DTLS/SCTP.


Adax SCTP/T and DTLS achieves world class levels of signaling performance and delivery of valuable and timely real-time data unsurpassed in the industry, providing:

New AI features provide self-healing for Drones, UAVs, and remote corners of the network

• Up to 10,000 simultaneous associations for maximum connectivity

• Secure authentication with performance & visibility

• Protocol implementation in the OS kernel for accurate timer control and quick recovery

• In-service monitoring and detection of link degradation, anticipating the need to offload to secondary links

• Enhanced multi-homing provisioning options improve fail-over robustness and redundancy

Applications with high-throughput and/or low tolerance of latency requirements include:

• Augmented and Virtual Reality

• Vehicle control, telematics and updates

• Remote personal healthcare and some wearables

• Video surveillance

• Location tracking

• Location-based marketing and advertising

• Industrial robotics and environmental control

• Smart home control

Why Adax?

Adax SCTP/T and DTLS deliver the highest levels of performance and service that:

• Detects and fixes real-time failures and achieves service restoration through alternate destination addresses

• Provides both redundancy and fault tolerance for signaling applications avoiding single points of network failure

• Transparently switches to the secondary path, without packet loss or upper layer intervention

• Improves destination and peer path failure detection
