OSC can be used over any network. TCP is also mentioned in the OSC spec:
"OpenSound Control (OSC) is an open,
, message-based protocol developed for communication among computers, 
sound synthesizers, and other multimedia devices."

"The underlying network that delivers an OSC packet is responsible for 
delivering both the contents and the size to the OSC application. An OSC 
packet can be naturally represented by a datagram by a network protocol 
such as UDP. In a stream-based protocol such as
, the stream should begin with an int32 giving the size of the first 
packet, followed by the contents of the first packet, followed by the 
size of the second packet, etc."
