*> Our experience was that for AMPS we knocked the baud rate down as low as
*> possible to 4.8K and abandonded the use of TCP/IP altogether as we could
*> hit packet rate losses of 40% quite regularly and dropped connections.
*> We implemented a protocol on top of UDP where we just used a sliding
*> window (from memory about 16) and knocked the packet size to a small
*> size (about 100 bytes max) and allowed out of order packets but with a
*> timeout retransmission.
How does this differ from TCP with an MTU of 100 bytes and using SACK? (ie
where's the magic?)
