Transmitting large binary data over UDP? That makes only sense for few 
applications like video and audio streaming. UDP does neither guarantee 
that your data is received nor it's received in order. For example the 
packages A, B, C, D might be received as A, D, B (no C).

Can your protocol handle missing packages and out of order packages?
