Abstract [en]

The ongoing deployment of applications that transmit multimedia data makes it important for the Internet to better accommodate the service requirements of this type of applications. One approach is to provide a partially reliable service, i.e. a service that does not insist on recovering all but only some of the packet losses, thus providing less delay than a reliable transport service. This technical report describes a transport protocol that provides a partially reliable service. The protocol, called PRTP, is especially aimed at applications with soft real-time requirements. The report also presents performance results from a number of different experiments investigating different aspects of PRTP. The results indicate that transfer times can be significantly decreased when using PRTP as opposed to TCP when packets are lost in the network.
