This article introduces all the basic knowledge you need to know about RTCP (Real-Time Transport Control Protocol). Learn more about its theoretical background and even about its implementation that has been already done by Ozeki VoIP SIP SDK.
What is RTCP
The Real-Time Transport Control Protocol (RTCP) is a companion protocol of the Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP) the one used to send and receive most media over IP these days. RTCP gathers statistics and information for a media connection. It provides feedback to the sender about the quality of the data being sent. RTCP gives information on transmitted octet and packet counts, lost packet counts, jitter, and round-trip delay time. This information can be used to control quality of service parameters, perhaps by limiting flow, or using a different codec. RTCP itself does not provide any flow encryption or authentication methods.
RTCP implementation is inevitable when you would like to develop a VoIP based software product. By using Ozeki VoIP SIP SDK you do not need to think about how to implement the Real-Time Transport Control Protocol to your application, because this SDK already includes it. That is why Ozeki VoIP SIP SDK can be your greatest help in developing any VoIP solutions.
Ozeki VoIP SIP SDK contains RTCP as a background base for the VoIP applications. You can not reach the tools of RTCP implementation from the SDK but all the features you need is implemented is automatically used in the background properly. You can find detailed information about it in the related developer guide page.
Examples on RTCP implementation:
- How to work with RTP in VoIP SIP calls?
- How to make a SIP voice call using C#?
- How to encrypt calls with RTP encryption?
This article introduced you the basic knowledge about RTCP protocol and suggested some useful examples about its implementation. If you have read through this page carefully, you already have all the knowledge you need to start on your own solution.
