Organization: IETF
Publication Date: 1 January 2013
Status: active
Page Count: 90
scope:

This document specifies a RObust Header Compression (ROHC) profile for compression of TCP/IP packets. The profile, called ROHC-TCP, provides efficient and robust compression of TCP headers, including frequently used TCP options such as selective acknowledgments (SACKs) and Timestamps.

ROHC-TCP works well when used over links with significant error rates and long round-trip times. For many bandwidth-limited links where header compression is essential, such characteristics are common.

This specification obsoletes RFC 4996. It fixes a technical issue with the SACK compression and clarifies other compression methods used.
