Faster Wireless Downloads

Mobile units are the future of the internet, or at least a very important part of it. But one of the problems constantly experienced by those downloading data is slowness and dropped packets. A new protocol, fasp-Air by Aspera promises to fix this problem by addressing some of the shortcomings of TCP, the standard protocol used to date. The new protocol was used when making the movie Avatar, to speed up data transmissions from New Zealand to the US. Fast data transmission is critical to the future development of e-business, as transmissions become larger and more frequent. Read up on fasp-Air in this article.
