Technical Summary This document specifies the use of the Quick-Start mechanism by the Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP). The document specifies general procedures applicable to all DCCP CCIDs and specific procedures for the use of Quick-Start with DCCP CCID 2, CCID 3 and CCID 4. Quick-Start enables a DCCP sender to cooperate with Quick-Start routers along the end-to-end path to determine an allowed sending rate at the start of a connection and, at times, in the middle of a DCCP connection (e.g., after an idle or application- limited period). Working Group Summary The document has been produced and reviewed by the DCCP working group and the WG is in agreement to publish this document. A copy of the WG last-call note was also sent to the TSVWG mailing list. Document Quality There are no implementations known of this specification, apart from ns-2 simulations. The key authors of the original Quick-Start RFC 4782 have also reviewed the earlier version of the document, and the document has addressed their comments. Personnel The Document shepherd is Pasi Sarolahti (firstname.lastname@example.org). The Responsible Area Director is Lars Eggert (email@example.com).
