Samsung licenses TCP Engines' acceleration solutions for cloud, data center and mobile handset applications

Originally developed at Tsinghua University as TCP-FIT, the parties are collaborating on a tuned version to ensure the best performance from Samsung devices, which has already shown to increase throughput over 300% on Samsung handsets.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Samsung, the world leader mobile technology, licensed TCP Engines' solutions, which enable Samsung handsets and other devices to transfer photos, videos, documents, and presentations with greater speed than any other in the market. Originally developed at Tsinghua University's Future Internet Technology (FIT) Lab, the TCP-FIT algorithms and software form the foundation of TCP Engines' solutions.

According to System Architects at Samsung, "After exhaustive research, we found the TCP Engines' solutions demonstrate accelerated time-to-load performance for websites & streaming video, and had negligible impact on memory or CPU utilization. In fact, since TCP Engines operates at the transport layer, it is complementary to other apps and compression techniques, and unexpected benefits include an extended battery life of the handset as it reduces the time to transfer."

Other handset manufacturers, carriers, CDNs, websites, and equipment manufacturers are adding TCP Engines' solutions in their networks and devices. According to Professor Gene Wen, co-founder & co-inventor, "We were thrilled to see Samsung's handsets achieve over 300% better throughput on China Mobile & China Unicom networks, who benefit from the additional capacity created on their networks. A partnership with Samsung is the ultimate validation of TCP Engines' technology, and we look forward to working with them and their partners."

TCP Engines productized the "FIT" algorithms as a suite of TCP-MAX™ congestion management and bandwidth optimization solutions that enable any source to achieve close to the theoretical limit of the network speed. Based on decades of research, TCP Engines not only adjusts for both loss-based and delay-based packet loss & congestion, it dynamically adapts to changing network conditions to deliver the highest possible throughput and responsiveness. Many other techniques are not "fair" and effectively steal bandwidth from lesser TCP stacks, but TCP-MAX™ has proven to be very "fair" in all network conditions.
