Definition Edit

The User Datagram Protocol (UDP) (also called Universal Datagram Protocol) is one of the core members of the Internet Protocol Suite, the set of network protocols used for the Internet. With UDP, computer applications can send messages, in this case referred to as datagrams, to other hosts on an Internet Protocol (IP) network without requiring prior communications to set up special transmission channels or data paths.

Overview Edit

The protocol was designed by David P. Reed in 1980 and formally defined in RFC 768.
