Rate control, in conjunction with congestion control, is important and necessary to maintain both stability of overall network and high quality of individual data transfer ﬂows. In this paper, we study stable rate control algorithms for streaming data, based on control theory. We introduce various control rules to maintain both sending rate and receiver buﬀer stable. We also propose an adaptive two-state control mechanism to ensure the rate control algorithms are compatible to TCP traﬃcs. Extensive experimental results are shown to demonstrate the eﬀectiveness of the rate control algorithms.
