Abstract

The Internet was not designed with multimedia in mind. TCP is not well suited for multimedia and UDP is un-responsive in the face of congestion. MM-Flow, a rate-based protocol that responds to congestion, has not been thoroughly tested. We improve MM-Flow, perform an extensive analysis, and explore what it means to be a TCP-Friendly protocol. We find the new MM-Flow performs better over a wide range of network conditions.
