Now-a-days, a growing number of mobile equipment's have more than one single network interface. For instance, smart phones have 3G/4G and Wi-Fi interfaces at the same time. Regular TCP restricts communications to a single path per transport connection. MPTCP (MultiPath-TCP) is a set of extensions to traditional TCP to improve the robustness and performance of end-to-end transport layer connections using more than one interface simultaneously. A key issue in the design of MPTCP is the fairness to traditional TCP flows.
