Video services represent over a half of Internet
traffic. However, there is not any congestion control
mechanism which would be suitable and widely used for all
kinds of video services. This paper provides a study in which
this kind of congestion control mechanism is further
developed and improved based on the findings of our
previous study. This mechanism offers a specific approach
for congestion control because it can offer dual-mode
congestion control services. There is a backward loading
mode where the bandwidth is given away to other
connections after the load level of a network exceeds a
certain level. Instead, the other mode, a real-time mode,
always wants its fair share of the bandwidth.
