Temporary outages in IP packet delivery can occur during network reconvergence events, and conventional error-control methods that end points use can't effectively deal with such extended blocks of packet loss. Service providers can employ a number of network technologies to minimize the IP packet loss during such outages, ultimately resulting in lossless video transport.
