A new Request for Comments is now available in online RFC libraries. RFC 3448 Title: TCP Friendly Rate Control (TFRC): Protocol Specification Author(s): M. Handley, S. Floyd, J. Padhye, J. Widmer Status: Standards Track Date: January 2003 Mailbox: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org Pages: 24 Characters: 52657 Updates/Obsoletes/SeeAlso: None I-D Tag: draft-ietf-tsvwg-tfrc-05.txt URL: ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc3448.txt This document specifies TCP-Friendly Rate Control (TFRC). TFRC is a congestion control mechanism for unicast flows operating in a best-effort Internet environment. It is reasonably fair when competing for bandwidth with TCP flows, but has a much lower variation of throughput over time compared with TCP, making it more suitable for applications such as telephony or streaming media where a relatively smooth sending rate is of importance. This document is a product of the Transport Area Working Group of the IETF. This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol. This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
