Abstract

   This document describes lower layer guidelines for robust header
   compression (ROHC) and the requirements ROHC puts on lower layers.
   The purpose of this document is to support the incorporation of
   robust header compression algorithms, as specified in the ROHC
   working group, into different systems such as those specified by
   Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), 3GPP Project 2 (3GPP2),
   European Technical Standards Institute (ETSI), etc.  This document
   covers only lower layer guidelines for compression of RTP/UDP/IP and
   UDP/IP headers as specified in [RFC 3095].  Both general guidelines
   and guidelines specific for cellular systems are discussed in this
   document.
