Abstract

Transmission Control Protocol, TCP, and User Datagram Protocol, UDP, are inadequate for multimedia streaming on the Internet. TFRC eliminates TCP's drastic degradations in quality during network congestion by using an equation that determines its transmission rate and unlike UDP, TFRC implements "TCP-Friendly" congestion control to share bandwidth fairly. We implemented TFRC in Java and ran experiments on a WAN test-bed. We found TFRC excels in its overall performance of quality and fairness for multimedia streaming.
