TCP-friendly rate control (TFRC) is an end-to-end congestion control mechanism, whose goal is to provide rate control for unicast flows in IP networks. The main feature of TFRC is its ability to smoothly adapt the sending rate of a flow to network conditions, while competing for bandwidth with TCP flows in a relatively fair manner. TFRC was designed to offer a more stable sending rate than TCP on wired, best-effort networks, making it suitable for applications like multimedia streaming. This… CONTINUE READING
