Abstract

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
