The Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP) is a new transport protocol standard that the IETF recently proposed. Because DCCP simultaneously features congestion control and unreliable transmission, it's especially suited to multimedia streaming applications and has thus received much attention. This article introduces DCCP's main characteristics and operation.
