Özet

In this paper, we present performance results of our previously developed rate control algorithm under various controlled packet loss rates. Since IP has no QoS support for real-time delivery of multimedia data, QoS control service has to be provided by the applications. Unlike traditional rate control approaches that take into account only the loss statistics, our algorithm integrated receiver buffer status into the feedback messages from the clients. Under various packet loss rates, we compared our approach to traditional two watermark approach and observed that our algorithm is more robust to varying network conditions.
