"With respect to the interface between the transport protocol and higher-level protocols, the transport protocol performs a multiplexing/demultiplexing function. That is, multiple users employ the same transport protocol and are distinguished by port numbers or service access points. The transport entity may also perform a downward multiplexing function with respect to the network services that it uses."

many of us talks about conditions that arise whenever multiplexing RTP data boxes and also RTP Control Protocol (RTCP) packages for a passing fancy UDP vent. The idea updates RFC 3550 along with RFC 3551 to describe while such multiplexing will be and is not correct, plus it points out what sort of Program Information Standard protocol (SDP) can be used to signaling multiplexed sessions."
