Coded TCP boosts wireless connection speed, eliminates packet loss – TechSpot News

Researchers at Caltech, Harvard and MIT have been working with colleagues in Europe to come up with a method of boosting wireless network performance. What they’ve created is a network that is 10 times faster than a typical modern network without having to add any additional transmission power, base stations or wireless spectrum.

Known as coded TCP, the protocol essentially makes packet loss a thing of the past. As you may already know, packet loss is hardly a concern over a wired network but once you cut the cord and transmit over the airwaves, it becomes a serious problem.
