IP/UDP/RTP header compression [CRTP] can generate a large number of lost packets when used over links with significant error rates, especially when the round-trip time of the link is large. This document describes a more robust header compression scheme. The scheme is adaptable to the characteristics of the link over which it is used and also to the properties of the packet streams it compresses. Robustness against link-loss is achieved without decreasing compression efficiency.
