Video transmission needs stable sending rate in order that video could be displayed to show uniform qualities. In addition, lower packet loss rate is rather helpful in reducing video quality degradation. Therefore, reliable available bandwidth estimation becomes an indispensable step towards robust transmission of multimedia data. The existing available bandwidth estimation methods cannot deal with the false estimation problem and thereby precise estimation is impossible. In this paper, we propose a reliable available bandwidth estimation method based on distinguishing queuing regions and resolving false estimations. Promising simulation results indicate that our method can obtain available bandwidth precisely no matter the network environment is single-bottleneck or multiple-bottleneck.
