UPDATE: Multipath QUIC has been adopted by the QUIC WG! Have a look at the adopted IETF draft.
Multipath QUIC is an extension to the QUIC protocol that enables hosts to exchange data over multiple networks over a single connection. It is first introduced in the CoNEXT 2017 paper “Multipath QUIC: Design and Evaluation” and is described in details in its (old) IETF draft. A new version of the IETF draft is available.
A prototype of Multipath QUIC based on quic-go is available here.
The artifacts for the CoNEXT 2017 paper and a description on how to use them are available here.
You can also retrive the Ph.D. thesis of Quentin De Coninck about “Flexible Multipath Transport Protocols” here.
The Packet Number Space Debate in Multipath QUIC
Thanks to a joint effort of all previous multipath QUIC drafts, the common draft focusing on core Multipath QUIC has been adopted by the IETF QUIC Working Group. While...
