What does “Symmetrical Rate” streaming session mean?

The rate at which streaming data is transmitted, in kilobytes per second (kbps). This rate applies to transmitted (uplink) and received (downlink) data. Desired symmetrical rate – From the drop-down list, choose the desired data rate for your Streaming connection. This can be 32kbps, 64kbps, 128kbps or 256kbps. This figure is guaranteed, unless the connection cannot meet this requirement because of bandwidth restrictions. In this case the rate defaults to the minimum symmetrical rate. Minimum symmetrical rate – From the drop-down list, choose the minimum data rate that you are prepared to accept for your Streaming connection. This can be 32kbps, 64kbps, 128kbps or 256kbps. This rate must be lower than the desired symmetrical rate. If the connection cannot meet this requirement, an error message displays.
