A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Robust Header Compression Working Group of the IETF.

	Title		: TCP-Aware RObust Header Compression (TAROC)
	Author(s)	: H. Liao et al.
	Filename	: draft-ietf-rohc-tcp-taroc-02.txt
	Pages		: 41
	Date		: 23-Jul-01
As a major transport protocol of current Internet, TCP has the 
problem of the large header overhead on bandwidth-limited links. 
Header compression has been proven to be efficient for using TCP 
over bandwidth-limited reliable links. Unfortunately, existing 
TCP/IP header compression schemes do not work well on noisy links, 
especially the one with high bit error rate and long roundtrip time.  
In addition, existing schemes [2, 3] have not addressed some TCP 
options such as SACK [4, 5] and Timestamps [6].

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.
