 Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP) is an unreliable, connection

 for real-time and multimedia (streaming) traffic.

+It divides into a base protocol (RFC 4340) and pluggable congestion control
+modules called CCIDs. Like pluggable TCP congestion control, at least one CCID
 needs to be enabled in order for the protocol to function properly. In the Linux
 implementation, this is the TCP-like CCID2 (RFC 4341). Additional CCIDs, such as
 the TCP-friendly CCID3 (RFC 4342), are optional.
