A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories. This draft is a work item of the Datagram Congestion Control Protocol Working Group of the IETF. Title : Quick-Start for Datagram Congestion Cntrol Protocol (DCCP) Author(s) : G. Fairhurst, A. Sathiaseelan Filename : draft-ietf-dccp-quickstart-02.txt Pages : 22 Date : 2009-03-03 This document specifies the use of the Quick-Start mechanism by the Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP). DCCP is a transport protocol that allows the transmission of congestion-controlled, unreliable datagrams. DCCP is intended for applications such as streaming media, Internet telephony, and on-line games. In DCCP, an application has a choice of congestion control mechanisms, each specified by a Congestion Control Identifier (CCID). This 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). The present specification is provided for use in controlled environments, and not as a mechanism that would be intended or appropriate for ubiquitous deployment in the global Internet.
