A product is about to hit the market that promises to relieve bandwidth problems over the TCP/IP-based Internet and wide area intranets.
The runTCP transporter from RUN Ltd, based in Tel Aviv, Israel, is aimed at ISPs and network specialists implementing intranets and wide area networks.
The problem with a typical TCP/IP session is that if more data is sent than bandwidth available, the data has to be resent. Compounding the problem is the frequent variability of bandwidth in a dynamic situation.
RunTCP's algorithms use the speed of the return acknowledgment to determine how much data to send and when to send it.
The company claims improvements up to 300 per cent with a T1 connection and up to 500 per cent over T3.
First US customer shipments are expected shortly. Price will be between $US4000 and $US15,000 depending on configuration.
