By the remarkable improvement of network performance which consist of Internet and the diffusion of high-end terminals such as smart-phones, media streaming service is becoming one of the major communication technologies. However current packet networks still cannot provide a stable transmission quality and it can cause stream quality degradation. Especially, the main factor affecting quality is congestion across a network. Efficient utilization of available bandwidth over Multiple Access Networks of multi-homed devices can be a reasonable solution to provide good quality for real-time media streaming applications. In this paper, the authors propose Real Time & Multi-path Transmission Protocol (RTMTP), a transport layer protocol in which multiple path real-time transport is available.
