ABR segments are transferred conventionally using HTTP/1.0 transfers, where the client requests the whole segment and it is transferred using store-and-forward transfers, where all the data belonging to the transfer is buffered before sending. In order to start the transfer, the size of the segment needs to be known.
ABR delivery offers the prospect of automatic adaptation of bit rates to the prevailing network conditions. Since the client is aware of the set of available bit rates, it can determine, segment-by-segment, which is the optimal bit rate to use.
