Technical Summary

   The Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) is a widely used
   transport for real-time multimedia on IP networks. The
   Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP) is a newly
   defined transport protocol that provides desirable services
   for real-time applications. This memo specifies a mapping of
   RTP onto DCCP, along with associated signalling, such that
   real-time applications can make use of the services provided
   by DCCP.
    
Working Group Summary
 
   The consensus within the DCCP WG to publish this document as
   a draft standard RFC is strong.
   
Protocol Quality
 
   The document is clear and the mechanisms involved are fairly
   straight-forward and simple. There is believed to be at
   least one implementation in progress.
