Abstract: The Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) is specifically designed for constrained IoT devices and is being rapidly deployed for the communication needs of the IoT devices. CoAP has been specified with its own congestion control algorithms because it runs on top of UDP that does not include any congestion control measures. These algorithms aim at taking into account the specific needs of the IoT communication. The need of running CoAP also over TCP has arised recently and is expected to be increasingly deployed alongside with CoAP over UDP. To understand the benefits and shortcomings of both CoAP over TCP and CoAP over UDP, we run an extensive set of experiments in different network settings and compare the performance of CoAP over TCP to the existing congestion control algorithms for CoAP over UDP. Our results reveal that even though CoAP over TCP has its known limitations it scales well and performs even better than expected in certain wireless settings that CoAP over UDP algorithms are specifically designed for, often even outperforming CoAP over UDP.
