RADE vs. ICA Citrix Session

I am currently testing Citrix Application Streaming for CPS 4.5. When I run the Program Neighborhood Agent on a client and login, it automatically populates my desktop with the published applications that the user has access to. I start up one of these programs on the desktop and then check the connection status on the Presentation Server - it shows an ICA#tcp connection. That is by design, and that is fine.

Then, I install the Citrix Streaming Client and then run the same program on the desktop - now it shows a RADE session on the Presentation Server.

My question is this - what is the difference between an ICA session and a RADE session? What are the bandwidth differences? What other distinct features do each possess? I don't fully understand how streaming differs from ICA, obviously. Help!
