Wireless internet enables wireless connectivity to the internet via radio waves. The rapid growth of wireless Internet, and broad band networking infrastructures, such as 3G and 3.5G, WLAN and WLAN-mesh and WiMAX, makes multimedia (audio and video) information available to the user anytime, anywhere, on any device. The versatility of wireless internet has consumers demanding the service at an increasing rate. Therefore, it is important to develop an efficient rate control protocol for the transmission of multimedia data through wireless networks which reduces all types of losses by satisfying multimedia constraints such as delay jitter, and to achieve a high throughput.
