This document describes a profile for optimizing TCP over second
(2.5G) and third (3G) generation wireless networks. We describe the
relevant characteristics of 2.5G and 3G networks, and specific
features of example deployments of such networks. We then recommend
TCP optimization mechanisms and discuss open issues. All the
configuration options in this document are found in modern TCP stacks
and are widely available standards-track mechanisms that the
community considers safe for use on the general Internet. Even hosts
which serve predominantly non-wireless users may safely enable these

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
