What type of applications are best suited for using UDP?
- applications that are sensitive to delay
- applications that need reliable delivery
- applications that require retransmission of lost segments
- applications that are sensitive to packet loss
Answers Explanation & Hints:
UDP is not a connection-oriented protocol and does not provide retransmission, sequencing, or flow control mechanisms. It provides basic transport layer functions with a much lower overhead than TCP. Lower overhead makes UDP suitable for applications which are sensitive to delay.
