Mobile Multimedia Streaming Improvements with Freeze-DCCP
We propose to demonstrate a cross-layer enhancement of DCCP/TFRC which allows the transport to better handle network mobility handovers and adapt faster to the capacity available in the new network. We argue Freeze-DCCP is well suited for real-time traffic such as multimedia streaming. The mechanism has been implemented in the Linux kernel and the demonstration is run in a mobility testbed.
