A method for monitoring and optimizing performance of a packet network utilizing user datagram protocol including determining network performance information between a sending user datagram protocol network element and a receiving user datagram protocol network element; concatenating the network performance information into data packets; transmitting the data packets to at least one non-user datagram protocol network device having transport layer capabilities; and controlling bandwidth of the at least one non-user datagram protocol network device to optimize the network utilizing the user datagram protocol based on the network performance information in the data packets. A system for monitoring and optimizing performance of a packet network utilizing user datagram protocol is also included.
