A study of chronological advancements in TCP/IP combines with advanced topics in multimedia communications to produce a functional implementation of a real-time, multimedia internetworking data transmission protocol. This new IP-based protocol, named XUDP, uses the concept of timed-obsolescence and the lessons learned from the development of TCP/IP, yielding an end product that efficiently utilizes the available network bandwidth to transmit real-time multimedia data in a manner that maintains the end user's perception of the linear progression of timed sequential data.
