Extend of my previous work. Consider stochastically TCP-friendliness that defined as:

where denotes the control for UDP traffic and are the rates of a set of sessions; is a set of utility function and the comparison is component-wise to the vector .

If is defined as the set of all increasing functions (), then the stochastic ordering is the usual stochastic order, which means

The protocol in this paper, TCP-Friendly CBR-Like Rate Control or TFCBR, is not to apply admission control but to smooth the rate of sending to a longer time scale, say, minutes. There are two parameters in this scheme, namely, the fraction of TCP rate to send by the TFCBR; and the time constant. The protocol checks TCP rate for previous seconds using equation and adapt to the of that rate. Thus it is like a moving average and it claims that, by appropriately adjusting the parameters, it can be stochastically TCP-friendly.

The paper also points out, cannot be greater than 1 or otherwise it is not TCP-friendly at all.
