Future Transports

Date and Time: 
7 November, 2010 - 10:45 - 11:15

An overview and run-through of evolving technologies that will/might hit mainstream soon and change how Internet transports are made.

Where are the limits and restrictions in current transport layers? TCP and HTTP are everywhere. Are they up for a future of much faster traffic and higher demands from users?

People and groups working on the TCP stack and on the application layer both on client-side and on server-side all have different technologies in the works to further the user experience.

In particular this talk will cover WebSockets, SPDY, MPTCP and SCTP. How they work and how they will make future Internet transports better.
