Apple is employing an advanced Multipath TCP networking in its latest iOS 7. Apple has used this mechanism in order for its devices (such as the iPhone) to be able to utilize innumerable interfaces to relay information.
The name says it all. Multipath TCP allows an iPhone or iPad to send valuable data through many passages at one and the same time. Contemporaneous devices can access info over 3G cellular and Wi-Fi networks thanks to this setup. This novel method was serendipitously found by Olivier Bonaventure, a Belgian computer science expert who aired the discovery on his blog.
The major benefit of this protocol is that it is very efficient. If one pathway is blocked, another will take over the job of facilitating information in its place. The Belgian genius made the finding when he ran an iPad on iOS 7. The fact that Multipath TCP could link those Apple servers which were in synch proved his thesis.
This doesn’t occur in case of apps such as Safari. However, by employing the services of SIRI you will be able to see results. The whole shebang began when the European Commission funded a startup called the Trilogy Project about half a decade ago. It is still not a very popular scheme and is seldom frequented by users.
But Apple’s allowance of Multipath TCP in iOS 7 makes the product on this technology available to all for the first time. The pleasant surprise found on Apple’s iOS 7 currently has the user community in its grips. The fact that your Internet connection will be maintained despite any hitches is good news indeed.
