Abstract

   This document specifies a highly robust and efficient header
   compression scheme for RTP/UDP/IP (Real-Time Transport Protocol, User
   Datagram Protocol, Internet Protocol), UDP/IP, and ESP/IP
   (Encapsulating Security Payload) headers.

   Existing header compression schemes do not work well when used over
   links with significant error rates and long round-trip times.  For
   many bandwidth limited links where header compression is essential,
   such characteristics are common.
