Abstract [en]

The stability and performance of the Internet to date have in a large part been due tothe congestion control mechanism employed by TCP. However, while the TCP congestioncontrol is appropriate for traditional applications such as bulk data transfer, it hasbeen found less than ideal for multimedia applications. In particular, audio and videostreaming applications have difficulties managing the rate halving performed by TCP inresponse to congestion. To this end, the majority of multimedia applications use eithera congestion control scheme which reacts less drastic to congestion and therefore oftenis more aggressive than TCP, or, worse yet, no congestion control whatsoever. Sincethe Internet community strongly fears that a rapid deployment of multimedia applicationswhich do not behave in a fair and TCP-friendly manner could endanger the currentstability and performance of the Internet, a broad spectrum of TCP-friendly congestioncontrol schemes have been proposed. In this report, a survey over contemporary proposalsof TCP-friendly congestion control mechanisms for multimedia traffic in the Internetis presented. A classification scheme is outlined which shows how the majority of theproposed congestion control schemes emanate from a relatively small number of designprinciples. Furthermore, we illustrate how these design principles have been applied ina selection of congestion control scheme proposals and actual transport protocols.
