Edge-to Edge Transport-Level Traffic Transformations in TCP/IP Networks
The Internet's current end-to-end approach to transport protocols makes deploying new versions of the protocol difficult. Furthermore, hosts within the same institution miss natural opportunities to share information and coordinate actions. An alternative is to deploy special agents at the edge of the Internet, between institutions and their links to the Internet, that transform TCP/IP traffic to improve performance, much as today's firewalls filter TCP/IP traffic to improve security. The goal of this project is to quantify the performance benefits of various traffic transformations.
