IETF RFC 6846
RObust Header Compression (ROHC): A Profile for TCP/IP (ROHC-TCP)
|Publication Date:||1 January 2013|
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.
