One of the biggest things that separates UDP from TCP is that UDP does not use acknowledgements when sending data. TCP waits for your device to confirm it received the data while UDP does not.

As discussed in class, a good example of this is streaming audio/video.

Connectionless datagram service: No connection established, packet may show up in any order.
Self contained datagram.

Unreliable delivery:

  • No acknowledgement
  • No mechanism to detect missing or mis-sequenced datagram.
  • No flow control
