The TCP-Friendly Rate Control for small packets (TFRC-SP) protocol was designed for applications including streaming audio and Voice over IP which send small packets. The long round trip delay of a satellite link could degrade the performance of such applications including streaming audio and VoIP that use TFRC-SP. In this paper, we analyze the performance of TFRC-SP carrying live streaming audio and VoIP over networks that include satellite paths. We also propose using the Quickstart algorithm along with TFRC-SP to improve the performance of these applications over a satellite link. © 2006 IEEE.
