This document is a survey of Performance Enhancing Proxies (PEPs)
often employed to improve degraded TCP performance caused by
characteristics of specific link environments, for example, in
satellite, wireless WAN, and wireless LAN environments. Different
types of Performance Enhancing Proxies are described as well as the
mechanisms used to improve performance. Emphasis is put on proxies
operating with TCP. In addition, motivations for their development
and use are described along with some of the consequences of using
them, especially in the context of the Internet.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
