UDP refers to the User Datagram Protocol, which is a protocol within the TCP/IP protocol group. UDP is used in place of TCP when reliable delivery is not critical. It is commonly used in VoIP transmissions, streaming audio, and videoconferencing.

UDP is a connectionless protocol. It is mostly used in applications where it is not necessary to retransmit erroneous or dropped packets.
