A study of a simple preventive transport protocol

Abstract : The main qualities of a protocol for multimedia flows transportation are related to the way congestions are handled. This paper addresses the problem of end-to-end congestion control performed in the Internet transport layer. We present a simple protocol called Primo, that determines the appropriate sending rate in order to maximize network resources usage and minimize packets loss. Comparison with existing transport protocols (TCP Reno, Sack, Vegas and TFRC) are considered, regarding various efficiency criteria such as sending and reception rates stability, loss rate, resources occupancy rate and fairness.
