Jon Crowcroft presented our paper on
Effects of Interleaving on RTP Header Compression
at the IEEE Infocom conference in Tel Aviv, Israel, this week.
RAT has long supported interleaved audio as a bandwidth efficient
means of protecting audio streams from the effects of packet loss
in the Internet, trading-off latency for improved loss resilience
for low-interactivity scenarios.
With the increased interest in IP/UDP/RTP header compression, to
allow use of VoIP over low bandwidth dial-up and cellular links,
interleaving becomes problematic.
This paper notes the adverse effects of interleaving on IP/UDP/RTP
header compression and discusses a number of schemes that can remedy
