In this paper we examine reliable transport level protocols for efficient transactions across a network. A typical transaction is a request from a client and a response from a server.

However, several protocols [19, 11, 171 have been designed to meet both needs, including a proposed extension of TCP call T/TCP [4, 51… CONTINUE READING
