IESG Telechat date: Not scheduled for a telechat

Summary: Ready, but with nits and minor issues that should be addressed.

Major issues: None

Minor issues:  This document describes test cases for evaluating
performance of RTP congestion control algorithms over LTE & WIFI networks.

Section 1 It is mentioned a number of instance where “wired” is mentioned
where I believe “wireless” or “WIFI” is what is meant to be stated.  Please

I would recommend  to use WIFI to refer to local LAN WIFI and use cellular
to refer to a mobile handset, and not use the term “wireless” as that could
be confusing.

I would recommend not using LTE to refer to Cellular from a general mobile
handset point of view, since LTE refers to 4G and Cellular could be any -
2G,3G,4G,5G etc

Section 3 This section also mentioned “wired” where I think the goal of the
document is test cases of WIFI & Cellular and adding in wired does confuse
the reader
as we are talking about quality degradation issues with wireless
technologies - WIFI & Cellular.  Please check the verbiage.

Section 3 In this sentence you mention 3G support of high bandwidth.  My
experience with 3G has not been very slow page loading and that multimedia
would suffer.

Section 3 Bottom of page 5 it is mentioned that the combination of multiple
access technologies such as one user has LTE connection and another has
Wi-Fi connection is kept out of the scope of this document.  Please explain
why as the reader would believe it would be in scope as that is the main

Section 3 Top of page 6 - I am wondering if there is a better explanation
of why you need a test simulator due to unpredictable nature or cellular
other than underground mines.

Section 3.1.1 Here the fixed user is on a wired LAN connected to mobile
user.  You mention wireless interface which makes me wonder is the fixed
user actually a
WIFI user connected to broadband WIFI router wired to the internet. See in
quotes which makes me wonder
"The fixed user is connected to the Internet via wired connection with
sufficiently high bandwidth, for instance,
10 Gbps, so that the system is resource limited on the {wireless?}

Section 4.1 Please explain in why the home access link represents a
bottleneck due to its bandwidth.
It is not obvious as these days Gigabit and above broadband speeds are
available at home.

Nits/editorial comments:

Draft Date should to be updated.

Section 3.1.2  1-B Antenna- [2D, 3D] should be defined
Section 3.1.2 RTT [40, 150] , should define a unit millisecond
Section 3.1.2 4. User Intensity, should define what the values in brackets
mean and unit of measure.
Section 3.1.2 7.2.a Media direction: Uplink and Downlink,  should define
what is meant by Uplink and Downlink
Section 4.2.3 g N= [4, 8, 12, 16, 20], should define what N is and any unit
of measure
