This document specifies TCP-Friendly Rate Control (TFRC).
TFRC is a congestion control mechanism for unicast flows
operating in a best-effort Internet environment. It is
reasonably fair when competing for bandwidth with TCP flows,
but has a much lower variation of throughput over time
compared with TCP, which makes it more suitable for
applications such as telephony or streaming media where a
relatively smooth sending rate is of importance.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
