Project to write a PILC BCP RFC: TCP Over Wireless December 2000 Hiroshi Inamura, Max Hata NTT DoCoMo Gabriel Montenegro Sun Microsystems
Why a TCP over wireless document? • Aid uniformity in installed base of TCP implementations in handsets. • ex. 15 million in Japan for current i-mode • There is little information source where WAP will be going • Internet convergence in WAP2.0 • The BCP already overdue for one year • Initial set of volunteers from WAP-NG
Background • WAP forum WPG-NG is completing drafting TCP specification for handsets, based on optimization techniques from IETF/PILC. • Efforts have been made to find an optimal set of techniques for a wide range of wireless networks, ranging from slow networks to high speed networks like 2.5G/3G. • During the process, a number of valuable vision, ideas and data have been accumulated in order to apply the optimization techniques to wireless networks. • Now, time to put them into a BCP, entitled “TCP Over Wireless” to be shared by wider wireless and networking community.
Objective of the BCP:“TCP Over Wireless” • Provide an overview document with relevant pointers to other relevant PILC work. • Ensure the goal of WAP-NG; Internet Convergence • Provide recommendations for wireless networking community
Scope • More general perspective than TCP specification in WAP • Provide overview, define domain and requirements and present a solution • A short and succinct document with references to the other PILC documents • Identify which of the considerations remain research topics. • Research topics will be explicitly flagged as not part of any recommendations.
Task team members • Support from within the WPG-NG/WAP working group results in this informal activity • Volunteers from the working group • Chief Editor: Hiroshi Inamura - DoCoMo • Gabriel Montenegro - Sun • Joby James - Motorola • Masahiro Hara - Fujitsu • William Gilliam - HP • …and others
Schedule • Kick off and go-ahead from PILC • IETF Meeting, San Diego Dec. 15, 2001 • Develop outline of the Doc • Mid Jan, 2001 • Proceed drafting • WAP London, Feb.5-9, 2001 • Publish ID 1 • Mid Feb, 2001 • Publish ID 2 • March 1, for IETF meeting, March 18-23, 2001, Minneapolis
