              Self-Clocked Rate Adaptation for Multimedia
                     draft-ietf-rmcat-scream-cc-07

Abstract

   This memo describes a rate adaptation algorithm for conversational
   media services such as video.  The solution conforms to the packet
   conservation principle and uses a hybrid loss and delay based
   congestion control algorithm.  The algorithm is evaluated over both
   simulated Internet bottleneck scenarios as well as in a Long Term
   Evolution (LTE) system simulator and is shown to achieve both low
   latency and high video throughput in these scenarios.

Status of This Memo
