                    We,  Jayesh V Rane, Nitin N Kumbhar and Kedar S Sovani, were group of three students from Pune Institute of Computer Technology (PICT), , researching and developing project on Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) and providing extension to it as 'Load Sharing'. We have got the precious guidance of Prof. Rajesh B. Ingle from PICT and Mr. Adityashankar Kini from Calsoft Inc.

                    We were using 4.3 FreeBSD as our platform for project. During the study phase, we have come through various topics that can be thought as 'Extensions to SCTP' . We have researched on the extension 'Load Sharing' for SCTP to provide more efficient Transport layer protocol. The basic implementation of SCTP protocol on 4.3 FreeBSD is done and more research is done on Load Sharing extension.
