The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is the cornerstone of intercommunications over Internet Protocol (IP) networks. TCP allows client-server applications to communicate reliably over the unreliable IP packet service and share network bandwidth across connections in a roughly "fair" fashion. While TCP's algorithms for congestion control have proven to be remarkably scalable across the wide range of conditions and link bandwidths in most networks, additional mechanisms are necessary to enhance and optimize TCP performance for use on the very high-speed WAN links that have recently become available to today's enterprises.
