In this thesis, a new transport protocol, the Concurrent Multi-Path Concurrent Transmission Control Protocol (CmpSTCP) is proposed. The proposed protocol has been designed to handle real-time streams (video and audio) over IP-networks. One of the key strengths of this protocol lies in its ability to intelligently exploit the availability of multiple paths between multi-homed hosts for Synchronized transmission of unicast Synchronized streams. This work describes the architecture and operation

These limitations of other protocols have played a vital role in the design process of the proposed protocol. Experiments to evaluate the performance of CmpSTCP against other protocols and the results obtained therein are also documented in this work. Results show that CmpSTCP is a best effort protocol that tries to maximize the amount of data that is successfully delivered to the destination in a timely manner under varying drop and delay conditions of the network.
