"The Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP) is being designed as

congestion control behavior to high-rate UDP streams such as streaming
A good reading to DCCP can be found at
ok, but presenting it 10x is a rather classic marketing practice.
and 2. presenting it in a "professors internist" language will lead me in emotional counter-reaction to second that first:
"...Problem Statement for [DCCP]", which discusses such questions as "why not just implement congestion control at the application layer?" and "why not SCTP?"
-so only a partial solution of a becoming less "potential" problem due
with codecs which will slow down excessive UDP traffic.
Yes, both the codec and the DCCP must work hand-in-hand. If DCCP tells, that the link is congested, the codec must slow down its coding rate.
codecs could implement their own congestions detection protocols on their layer, etc.
but i tend to agree finally to leave this to a open standard like DCCP :)
-most soho embedded routers and firewalls are based on very old linux
kernels without DCCP-
support and the DCCP wikipedia article states not much implementations
The current solution for NATs is to use DCCP on top of UDP.
basically ISO/OSI- layer violation? see above.
"In order for the [RFC4340] encapsulation to pass through Network
Address Translation (NAT) devices, these devices must be updated to
recognize and properly modify DCCP. This is the long-term objective
for DCCP, and work is underway to specify the necessary operations."
yes, and as we all know, consumer hardware manufacturers will not provide firmware support for devices >2 years lifecycle age nowadays but you need to buy new for other tech upgrades anyway every 2-5 years, so no point, Yannick.
Did the Internet started a university playground? IMHO researcher are nothing but kids that like to play ;-)
since 2006 university playground, but patches for Ekiga are welcome ;)
with UTF-8 ? ;) pls send messages in ISO- encoding, thanks ;)
That's why I like to work at university...
o.O sorry for my bad english. good job for sure, thank You very much :)
