Executive Summary

The authors propose a transport-layer approach to provide predictable throughput for applications requiring stable bandwidth resource, such as video streaming and VoIP. The proposed mechanism deploys an end-to-end approach: it dynamically sets the increase degree of the congestion window size of a TCP connection according to the measurement results of the available bandwidth of the network path, which is obtained by inline network measurement technique developed in their research group. In the present paper, they briefly introduce the proposed mechanism and show the performance evaluation results in the experimental network and in the commercial Internet environment.
