This document specifies TCP-Friendly Multicast Congestion
Control (TFMCC).  TFMCC is a congestion control mechanism for
multicast transmissions in a best-effort Internet environment.
It is a single-rate congestion control scheme, where the
sending rate is adapted to the receiver experiencing the worst
network conditions.  TFMCC is reasonably fair when competing
for bandwidth with TCP flows and has a relatively low
variation of throughput over time, making it suitable for
applications where a relatively smooth sending rate is of importance,
such as streaming media.  This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for 
the Internet community.

This document is a product of the Reliable Multicast Transport
Working Group of the IETF.


EXPERIMENTAL: This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet
