Abstract

   Layered Coding Transport (LCT) provides transport level support for
   reliable content delivery and stream delivery protocols.  LCT is
   specifically designed to support protocols using IP multicast, but
   also provides support to protocols that use unicast.  LCT is
   compatible with congestion control that provides multiple rate
   delivery to receivers and is also compatible with coding techniques
   that provide reliable delivery of content.
