NEAT at the 93rd IETF meeting


Seven NEAT partners were present at the 93rd IETF meeting, held in Prague on July 19-24.

During this meeting, contributions were made to the TAPS Working Group, including a presentation of a recent Internet Draft.

Besides, a face-to-face meeting was held to discuss technical topics related to the core NEAT transport system. The main focus of the discussion was on a family of techniques commonly referred to as “Happy Eyeballs” – that is, mechanisms to try and assess in parallel end-to-end support of multiple protocols, then picking the “best” protocol that works. Such mechanisms will be a cornerstone of the planned NEAT system.
