Recently we have studied the performance of the VS/VD behavior for two binary feedback congestion control schemes, FECN and BECN, when they are applied to multicast ABR services. It is shown that the VS/VD schemes alleviate the problems of consolidation noise and consolidation delay, which are two major design issues in multicast congestion control. To complement, we further explore the VS/VD behavior for the explicit rate feedback control scheme in this letter. Through an efficient rate estimation method, it is again observed that VS/VD behavior performs better than the traditional end-to-end schemes.
