Transparent transmission control protocol (TCP) acceleration is a technique to increase TCP throughput without requiring any changes in end-system TCP implementations. By intercepting and relaying TCP connections inside the network, long end-to-end feedback control loops can be broken into several smaller control loops. This decrease in feedback delay allows accelerated TCP flows to react more quickly to packet loss and thus achieve higher throughput performance. Such TCP acceleration can be… CONTINUE READING
