A 1 day RTP/RTCP Training Course includes RTP/RTCP overview, packets, protocols and usage scenarios.

Program Overview

RTP/RTCP training provides good understanding of the RTP/RTCP signaling, message format and protocols. This course is developed utilizing the latest learning and delivery techniques that offer unrivalled development opportunities.

Upon completion of this course, the participants will have a good understanding of:

  • IP Overview
  • RTP/RTCP Overview & Functions
  • RTP/RTCP packet types
  • RTP/RTCP packet format & Fields
  • RTP/RTCP Usage scenarios


The Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) defines a standardized packet format for delivering audio and video over the Internet. It was developed by the Audio-Video Transport Working Group of the IETF and first published in 1996 as RFC 1889, and superseded by RFC 3550 in 2003. RTP is used extensively in communication and entertainment systems that involve streaming media, such as telephony, video teleconference applications and web-based push to talk features.  RTP is usually used in conjunction with the RTP Control Protocol (RTCP). While RTP carries the media streams (e.g., audio and video) or out-of-band signaling (DTMF), RTCP is used to monitor transmission statistics and quality of service (QoS) information.

Intended Audience

Network & Telecom Engineers and Technical Staff involved in development, testing, and deployment requiring comprehensive details of RTP/RTCP packets, protocols & operations.


Although this course requires no previous knowledge or understanding of RTP/RTCP, a basic understanding of VOIP & IP technology would be beneficial.
