In this paper, the authors present a new transport protocol TSMP, which seeks to support data transfer for the emerging usage paradigm of "Single user, multiple devices" in a TCP compatible manner. Through its novel naming and proxy-based designs, TSMP is able to retain the current client and server protocol operations of the legacy TCP protocol and TCP-based applications while placing new functions at the proxy. Their evaluation has confirmed its viability. In this paper, they seek to design protocol solutions for an emerging usage scenario of "Single user, multiple devices."
