Encrypted TCP: Ten times faster with existing infrastructure

Encrypted TCP: Ten times faster with existing infrastructure

(CC) justmakeit

A huge team of academics from MIT, the University of Porto, Harvard, Caltech, and the Technical University of Munich are working together to improve tenfold in any IP network without requiring any new infrastructure.

This would be a new method, called TCP -coded to send and receive data packets through algebraic equations eliminate the need to resend the lost data packets, since the receiver would be able to calculate by itself since it is simple equations and linear. That is, one method would be applicable to any IP network, either through cable, Wi-Fi, 3G, etc..

For example, when tested with the Wi-Fi at MIT, where 2% of the data packets usually lose, from one moment to another aumentarion the rate of 1 Mb/s to 16 Mb/s to occupy TCP encoded. Also tested in a moving train, where 5% of the data packets are lost, and increased from 0.5 Mb/s to 13.5 Mb/s speed.

Scholars can not go into more detail because they signed confidentiality agreements with many companies due to the high interest shown in the TCP encoded. Licences are being delivered through a company created jointly by MIT and Caltech called Code-On Technologies .
