The current IPv4 Packet's scheme has several fields to be carried and transmitted in each packet even if the source, the destination and the payload of the packets are same. These fields utilize packet space and thus decrease the size of user data. Therefore the processing of each packet requires more time and delay of end-to-end transmission. This paper aims to optimize the current IP packet structure by reducing the size of the headers, increasing the size of the data, reducing packet processing time and speed up the data transmission.
