1. A method comprising:receiving, at an upstream gateway node, a video data flow;
sending, from the upstream gateway node, the video data flow to a Radio Access Network (RAN);

determining, at the upstream gateway node, via shallow packet inspection on the portion of the video data flow, that the portion of the video data flow is not a message containing no content and is not a request for acknowledgement to keep a connection alive; and
performing, at the upstream gateway node, flow control of the video data flow based on the congestion control message.
