Packet loss is undesirable for real-time multimedia sessions, but it
can occur due to congestion or other unplanned network outages.  This
is especially true for IP multicast networks, where packet loss
patterns can vary greatly between receivers.  One technique that can
be used to recover from packet loss without incurring unbounded delay
for all the receivers is to duplicate the packets and send them in
separate redundant streams.  This document defines the semantics for
grouping redundant streams in the Session Description Protocol (SDP).
The semantics defined in this document are to be used with the SDP
Grouping Framework.  Grouping semantics at the Synchronization Source
(SSRC) level are also defined in this document for RTP streams using
SSRC multiplexing.

This document is a product of the Multiparty Multimedia Session Control Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
