Congestion occurs at a bottleneck along an Internet path; multiple flows between the same sender and receiver pairs can benefit from using only a single congestion control instance when they share the same bot- tleneck. These benefits include the ability to control the rate allocation between flows and reduced overall delay (multiple congestion control in- stances cause more queuing delay than one since each has no knowledge of the congestion episodes experienced by the others). We present a mech- anism for coupling congestion control for real-time media and show its benefits by coupling multiple congestion controlled flows that share the same bottleneck.
