Abstract

With multimedia and Internet enabled devices being ubiquitous, mechanisms that ensure multimedia flows do not congest the Internet are crucial components of multimedia systems that are embraced rather than opposed by network service providers. The Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) Circuit Breaker is designed to terminate RTP/UDP flows that cause excessive congestion in the network. Multimedia users congesting the network have their flows terminated, as dictated by the RTP circuit breaker congestion rule. Users who obtain little quality from a multimedia session, and consume network resources to no avail, should also cease transmission. This is the mandate of the RTP circuit breaker media usability rule. We propose an algorithm for this rule, and show that it avoids wasting network resources on flows that deliver no quality to the user.
