While the Caltech IPR on Fast TCP tells us not to look at Fast TCP because of the deployment cost.


Note that the correct name of the protocol is FastTCP(TM) -- and that in FastSoft's preferred deployment model, you'd have to deploy their PEPs in front of every LAN... not so different from XCP.

FastTCP has been out of the running for deployment ever since it was first announced -- with the Caltech IPR shackles mentioned in the slideset.
