I do believe that the high-speed (more than 10% of core network speed) TCP connection is almost exclusive to the research/academic community. I think you're on the right track in the thoughts to develop a new TCP implementation solely for the application you describe above, and that it makes more economic sense to do this than to build with the quite a lot more expensive equipment with larger buffers. I guess the cost of developing a tweaked TCP protocol would be in the neighbourhood of the cost of a couple of OC192 linecards for the GSR :/ -- Mikael Abrahamsson email: swmike@xxxxxxxxx
