WCF – UDP Binding Support
Support for UDP Binding was much awaited in Windows Communication Foundation.
TCP is connection-oriented protocol that sends message and guarantees that it’s reached destination but UDP is connectionless protocol that sends message and doesn’t look back that either it’s reached to destination or not.

In one-way operation messages, UDP protocol is required because it’s comparatively faster than TCP. Now in WCF 4.5, UDP as communication protocol is supported through UDP binding.
So, simply we can use following configuration settings using UDPBinding as follows:
<service name=“MyUDPService” behaviorConfiguration=”MyUDPServiceBehavior”>
<dns value=”localhost” />
