Implementing Congestion Control in the Real World


Proceedings of the IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo, Lausanne, Switzerland, August .


It is well known that congestion control is a key issue for the safe deployment of multimedia applications over IP. We describe our initial experiences implementing TCP-friendly congestion control in a system designed to deliver HDTV content over IP. In particular we discuss the effects of packet reordering on the calculated throughput, and highlight the problems this can pose for high-rate applications.
