A new version (v7) of the main TCM-TF draft has been submitted to the IETF web page.
Tunneling Compressed Multiplexed Traffic Flows (TCM-TF) Reference Model, draft-saldana-tsvwg-tcmtf-07
Some of the improvements are:
- Stating that TCM-TF must keep backwards compatibility with RFC4170. Some people suggested it on the last BoF, because some devices already implement it.
- Adding some new information about Community Networks.
- Adding the possibility of optimizing UDP traffic of Constrained RESTful Environments (http://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/core/).
- Adding three new references.
- Slightly improving some figures.
Your comments will be welcome.
A new version of I-D, draft-saldana-tsvwg-tcmtf-07.txt has been successfully submitted by Jose Saldana and posted to the IETF repository.
Title: Tunneling Compressed Multiplexed Traffic Flows (TCM-TF) Reference Model
Document date: 2014-06-10
Group: Individual Submission
Tunneling Compressed and Multiplexed Traffic Flows (TCM-TF) is a
method for improving the bandwidth utilization of network segments
that carry multiple flows in parallel sharing a common path. The
method combines standard protocols for header compression,
multiplexing, and tunneling over a network path for the purpose of
reducing the bandwidth. The amount of packets per second can also be
This document describes the TCM-TF framework and the different
options which can be used for each layer (header compression,
multiplexing and tunneling).
Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
