This document contains the profile for Congestion Control Identifier 3, TCP-friendly rate control (TFRC), in the Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP). DCCP implements a congestion-controlled unreliable datagram flow suitable for use by applications such as streaming media. The TFRC CCID is used by applications that want a TCP-friendly send rate, possibly with Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN), while minimizing abrupt rate changes.
